Directions

While the 97-kilometre distance can also be done for well-trained "Gümmeler", the complete loop over 214 kilometres represents a very special challenge. Shortly after the start and finish zernez, which the long-distance runners pass not far from the finish line, there is still a meal. Four kilometres later, the biggest challenge of the day so far begins in Susch with the ascent to the 2383-metre-high Flüela. Although the pass is the roof of the Engadin Cycling Marathon, the absolute endurance test is still waiting in the final.

The 13-kilometre-long descent to Davos is both fast and challenging. Also through the Landwassertal it continues downhill – only about 30 kilometers after the Flüela a short, but violent ascent to Davos Wiesen awaits again, before another fast descent brings the participants to the lowest point of the Engadin Radmarathon in Alvaneu Bad. At 957 meters, the true challenge of the Engadin Cycling Marathon begins there, strengthened by another refreshment station. At 2312 metres, the Albula Pass is not quite as high as the Flüela, but on its 26 kilometres it leaves little time to catch your breath – especially since in addition to the ascent, the route along the Albula route of the Rhaetian Railway, also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is breathtaking.

On the Albula, 30 kilometres before the finish, there is the last food of the day on the way, followed by the departure "home". First in the footsteps of the Tour de Suisse through the larches of the Engadin to La Punt, then on the Engadiner Strasse via Zuoz and S-chanf down to Zernez to the big reception in the finish area of the Engadin Radmarathon.
