Tour des Alpes Vaudoises à Vélo

Sports events

The number of sports events in the canton of Vaud reflects athletes’ interest in this region. Throughout the year, an enthusiastic crowd cheers on competitors of all levels and from all disciplines.

In winter and summer, the canton of Vaud attracts athletes thanks to its exceptionally varied landscapes and very modern infrastructure. The fact that many sports federations have elected domicile in the region also stimulates the organisation of competitions on our soil.

Thanks to their cordial atmosphere, the sports events delight crowds of spectators that have come to cheer on great champions - at Athletissima, Equissima, the Lausanne Marathon or the Montreux Volley Masters - or amateur sportspeople of all ages. In summer, walking, jogging and cycling have become increasingly trendy but other disciplines such as climbing and paragliding also fascinate the public, whereas winter transforms our mountains in a challenge to be taken up by skiers, snowboarders and mushers.
