The 4.1-mile route starts in Lower City Park and winds along the Iowa River down to Terry Trueblood Recreation Area. The run and the walk follow the same route, but there is an option to stop after 2 miles and ride a shuttle to the end of the route.
Some walkers may prefer to take the shuttle to ensure they arrive in time for the closing ceremony at Terry Trueblood, which starts at 10:30 a.m.
Additionally, a shuttle will be available before the start of the event to transport participants from the finish and parking area at Terry Trueblood to the starting area at City Park. Departure times are listed below.
