The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

In order to offer you a quality and safe event, a COVID-19 certificate will be required for anyone wishing to participate in the race or access the event areas.


The Covid 19 certificate includes people who :


are either vaccinated against COVID-19 ;


or have recovered from the disease (test confirmed coronavirus infection);


or have a negative PCR test result (valid for 72 hours before the checkpoint) or a negative rapid antigen test result (valid for 48 hours before the checkpoint). If possible, we strongly recommend that you get tested in your region before you leave for the race number collection. If this is not possible, please make an appointment at one of the centres in the central Valais. As a reminder, antigen tests are free of charge for Swiss health insurance card holders (CHF 50.- for foreigners) in the test centres, hospitals and pharmacies.

Visitors and accompanying persons are only allowed to enter the festival on the Place de la Planta and the finisher village if they are in possession of a COVID 19 certificate, which they must present at the access control point.

In the event of cancellation of the NOVA Eroica Switzerland 2021, the registered person can request:


  • a refund of 80% of the amount paid
  • transfer their registration to 2022 free of charge

To offer participants maximum flexibility, the NOVA Eroica Switzerland offers a “Maxi Flex Option” for an amount of CHF 9.-, allowing:


  • change route until Saturday September 25, 2021
  • transfer their bib to another person until Saturday September 25, 2021
  • transfer their registration for the 2022 edition until September 15, 2021

If the number of registrants is limited, the principle of “first registrants, guaranteed bibs” will be used for the allocation of bibs.
