Leg 5: Downtown River Trek
An epic stadium run through, river running, downtown and on to the grand finale - 6.3 miles
It's the grand finale. Runners head straight into the stadium for an epic stadium run through, then cross over to run on the Platte River by Elitches and Confluence Park, the course rejoins the Cherry Creek Trail, passing "Venice on the Creek" punting. Exiting at Lawrence takes runners on a fun tour across the 16th Street Mall, under the Tabor Center, and then uphill out 17th Avenue passing great restaurants and Victorians. Runners stay on 17th until they enter City Park at 21st, with the grand finale between beautiful Ferril Lake and the vast meadows next to the Museum of Nature and Science.
