For this Edition, in order to let you discover some hidden places, we’ve chosen 6 Checkpoints next to a famous Swiss public transport.
It is of course compulsory (in addition to crossing the 26 cantons) to punch your SUCH-travelcard at these 6 CP.
At each location, you will find a sign (A4 format) with our logo and a punch attached to it.
If you get to the CP during the opening hours of the public transport in question, you will be able to use the ticket valid for the specific journey (described in our Race Manual). Yes, you read correctly…you will be allowed to choose a maximum of 2 transportation out of the 6 available. Why, because we thought it would give you time to chill, eat and enjoy the scenery…but you still need to visit the 6 CPs… 😉
