Watopia’s “5k Loop” run route essentially covers all of the “run only” path introduced in the September 30, 2018 update. At 5km in length this course is just right for single or multi-lap efforts, and the twists and turns keep it visually interesting.
You’ll begin by running northward through the start/finish and through the tunnel into downtown. Make your way onto the beach, past the statues, and over the ocean skyway. Finish off by making your way back into Run Valley to the start/finish. Then head off for another lap if you’ve got the legs!
Distance: 5km (3.1 miles)
About gradient/elevation in Zwift Run: while gradient changes are visually apparent on Zwift roads, runners don’t feel any resistance or gradient changes when hitting inclines in game. This lets you set your treadmill to whatever gradient you prefer. The elevation numbers sent to Strava are then recorded from your treadmill, so if you run at 0% your run will show no elevation gain, while running at 3% will show a steady 3% gain throughout your effort.
