Triverest Switzerland is an epic Triathlon starting in the center of Switzerland and finishing on the top of Mount Pilatus, the iconic mountain of dragons between the cantons of Obwalden and Luzern. With a combined elevation gain of 8’848 meters/29029 feet the name Triverest lends itself to Mount Everest. Our wish it to take the community of adventure seeking triathletes on a journey they’ll never forget.
Covering the elevation of Everest in one day will require the athletes to bike and run into the night. The route will cover 7 Alpine passes by bike and finish with a run to the top of yet another. Mastering this challenging adventure requires a strong body, mind and spirit but the feeling of achievement and personal conquest will make it all worth it!
Triverest is the first triathlon to reach the heights of Everest. The event is designed for professionals and amateurs, teams and solo triathletes. Racing substantial hours in the day and night makes this event the ultimate triathlon challenge/adventure. It will take solo athletes and teams between 16 and 24 hours to complete.
