Sustainability & regionality at #ÖRM

Pedaling step by step towards a green future

The starting field of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon sets - or rather pedals - the best example as far as sustainable mobility is concerned. However, the athletes conquer the 227 kilometer long race course using only their muscle power. The topics of sustainability and regionality are also of utmost importance to us organizers and we are therefore determined to continuously increase our efforts to that effect. Here you will find out more about all sustainable measures we are taking this year.

We have a dream. Not just the dream finishing the “Ötztaler”. Let us be exemplary cyclists and fans! How? Cycling sustainably together for a greener future at the Ötztal Cycle Marathon.

Mobility

Arriving by public transport either by train or by bus or carpooling is recommended.

✓ The public bus line runs through Ötztal every half hour: convenient for all spectators on Sunday and for the participants on all other days.

A free and guarded bicycle garage is available all weekend so that you can pick up your start package on foot or by bike.

✓ So that you can leave the car at the accommodation, a shuttle service to the start is offered to all participants.

Start package

✓ Our partners are on the same wavelength: many of our sponsors and partners do not use manufactured goodies anymore and provide sustainable and regional items.

✓ The sustainable aspect can also be found in the 2024 participant‘s gift: a reusable stainless steel drinking bottle.

Gastronomy, refreshment stations & waste

✓ After each refreshment station there are marked litter zones. Here we offer all participants the opportunity to dispose of any waste that has accrued, which is then separated accordingly. If this rule is not complied with according to the race regulations, disqualification will be a direct consequence.

✓ It goes without saying: waste separation at the refreshment stations and in the finish area.

Digital first

✓ We will try to use as little paper as possible. Instead, we provide QR Codes and all information on the website or in our Ötztaler Radmarathon App.

Social sustainability

✓ Over 1,000 volunteers from the region support this event.

✓  The BIKE 4 HELP Prologue of the Ötztal Cycling Marathon - Cycling for Social Sustainability to support needy families in Tyrol.

Old advertising banners are recycled by people with disabilities, by giving the banners a second chance - they become, for example, recycled bags.

Further measures

  The no longer needed fitted sheets from the Ötztal accommodations find a second use to protect the racing bikes during the return transport from the course to Sölden.

Pulling together - our partners are also taking care of the environment together with us and of course with you. Please help implement our green measures.
