Watopia Figure 8 (Hilly + Flat, both directions)

Watopia’s “Figure 8” route covers the entire hilly and flat courses in both directions, which is actually pretty cool if you think about it. It’s a really nice course for an hour long ride that involves some climbing, but not the Epic KOM.

This is a popular race route since it includes a nice mix of punchy climbs, flats, and rollers which can be completed in under an hour.

Watopia Four Horsemen

Watopia’s “Four Horsemen” route covers all four climbs in game: the original KOM, Volcano, Epic KOM and the new Alpe du Zwift. Along the way you’ll also cover (nearly) every bit of road on Watopia, so it’s a complete tour of our virtual fitness paradise. This is no leisure tour, though: be ready to work as you climb over 2000 meters in just under 90 kilometers!

Watopia Jungle Circuit

Watopia’s “Jungle Circuit” was added with the Mayan jungle expansion in late October 2017. It’s essentially a flat warmup followed by a bit of climbing, bringing you into the Mayan jungle to ride laps until your legs fall off.

Unlike most routes, there is no reverse version of the Jungle Circuit at this time. If you select this route then flip a u-turn you will be routed onto the reverse Watopia Hilly route.

Watopia Road to Ruins

Watopia’s “Road to Ruins” was added with the Mayan jungle expansion in late October 2017. It begins just like the Jungle Circuit, but takes you to the Volcano Flat and back home to the start/finish banner instead of leaving you riding jungle laps.

Currently this is the only route which takes you through the jungle and back through the start/finish banner without going over the Epic KOM. It is sure to be a popular group ride route for this reason.

Watopia Road to Sky

Watopia’s “Road to Sky” route is the shortest route which includes the climb up Alpe du Zwift. You begin on the pier near the seaplane, just before the start of the Epic KOM. You must then ride the first little climb, across the bridge, and to the bottom of the jungle before you hang a right and begin the Alpe du Zwift ascent. The route ends at the KOM banner atop Alpe du Zwift.

Watopia The Pretzel

“The Pretzel” route on Watopia is punishing indeed, at 44.8 miles (72.1km) in length and an elevation gain of 4,375′ (1333m). These numbers make this the longest, most challenging route on Zwift. This route covers all segments in Watopia at least twice.

Watopia Three Sisters

Watopia’s “Three Sisters” route covers all three Watopian climbs (Hilly KOM, Epic KOM including radio tower climb, and Volcano KOM) in a forward direction. While not as punishing as The Pretzel it’ll still put you in the hurt locker with almost 3000′ of climbing.

Interesting note: this is currently the only route which takes you up the Volcano climb. Getting there otherwise requires a manual turn at the appropriate spot.

Watopia Volcano Circuit

Watopia’s “Volcano Circuit” route takes you around and through the volcanic island in a clockwise direction. To get to the circuit you must first ride ~2.6km from the spawn point, travelling through a glass bridge to arrive at the volcano.

Once you arrive you will continue to be routed around the 4km circuit. A lap counter visible just after the circuit banner indicates the number of laps you have completed.

Watopia 11.1 Ocean Blvd

Watopia’s “11.1 Ocean Blvd” run route was named with a nod to Zwift headquarters, which is located on Ocean Blvd in Long Beach, California. Introduced in the September 30, 2018 update, this is the second-longest run route on Zwift at the time of its release.

Unlike the other run routes, this one begins with you running southward through the start/finish. You’ll find yourself on mixed-use roads quickly, progressing over the 360 bridge and onto the docks and dirt roads of the fishing village. Continue on through the underwater tunnels of Ocean Blvd, then you can finally hop onto the dedicated running path which takes you along the beachfront, over the water, and eventually into Run Valley to finish off your lap.

Route details:
Distance: 11.15km (6.93 miles)
Strava Segment

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.


Watopia 5k Loop

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!

Watopia Chili Pepper

Watopia’s “Chili Pepper” run route was introduced in the September 30, 2018 update. Most of this route is on mixed-use tarmac, so watch out for bikes!

You’ll begin by running northward through the start/finish and into the tunnel to downtown. Loop onto the main road and head over the tube bridge into the volcano, then take the land bridge to the Italian Villas and past the waterfall. From there it’s a short distance over the 360 bridge and back into Run Valley for your finish.

Watopia Jon’s Route

“Jon’s Route” is named after the game’s creator/head developer Jon Mayfield, who is an avid runner himself. At 12.5km it is the longest run route available at the time of the September 30, 2018 update.

You’ll begin by running northward through the start/finish and into the tunnel to downtown. Hang a right onto the main road, then a left onto Ocean Blvd for a run through the underwater tunnels. Hit the docks and dirt of the fishing village, get over the 360 bridge and you’re on the dedicated run path. From there you’ll make your way onto the skyway, run along the beach, then return through the lap banner in the opposite direction you began.

Watopia That’s Amore

Watopia’s “That’s Amore” is aptly named, since it is the only running route which takes you through the full Italian Villas section. Released in the September 30, 2018 update, this is a twisty route on mostly mixed-use roads.

You’ll begin by running northward through the start/finish and into the tunnel to downtown. Loop around onto the main road, which takes you over The Esses in a reverse direction. Cross JWB bridge and you’ll find yourself on the cobbles of the Italian Villas. Continue out of town past the waterfall and over the 360 bridge, then turn back onto the run path for a lap finish.

London “Classique”

The London course’s “Classique” route takes you on some of the most famous London streets including Strand, The Mall, Constitution Hill, and Birdcage Walk. You ride by Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace.

It is a precise replica of the Prudential RideLondon Classique route, which is described as “beginning on The Mall in St James’s Park, going up Constitution Hill, turning at the top to come down and on to Birdcage Walk, then passing Big Ben and turning left on to Whitehall and right on to the Strand before turning again to come back up the Strand, through Trafalgar Square, Admiralty Arch and back on to The Mall.”

When choosing this route option in game you will begin near the main start/finish banner, then ride a short warmup before you turn off for the Classique loop, which you will stay on as long as you wish.

The Strava segments below begin and end at the start/finish banner located on The Mall, not the main start/finish banner where the game starts your ride.

Greatest London Flat

London’s “Greatest London Flat” was released with Zwift’s February 1, 2018 update and is the longest “semi-flat” route on Zwift’s London course.

About the Start Point

If you choose this route, the game will spawn you on Constitution Hill near Buckingham Palace, riding in what is typically the reverse direction (westward). Since riders are placed at various points near Buckingham Palace on Constitution Hill, we chose to start our Strava segment at the Classique banner which is approximately 1.5km from the spawn point for this route.

About the Route

The route begins on the Classique route, but only covers a portion of it before turning onto the Greater London roads. You are then taken into the new “Richmond Park” section which was part of the January 2018 London expansion, through the start/finish banner, and back to the Classique route.

London’s “Triple Loops” route is a large loop containing three more loops. First you hit the Greater London loop, then the Classique, then ride over Leith Hill to a loop which includes Box Hill. Then you’re back through the start/finish banner to do it all again!

The route is essentially flat for the first half, then very hilly for the back half. A bit like Zwift’s Richmond UCI course in that respect, except much longer.

Innsbruck “2018 UCI Worlds Course Short Lap”

Innsbruck’s flagship route is actually just a portion of the 2018 Worlds course which will be raced in September 2018. It begins in Innsbruck on a flat road which crosses the Sill river then heads beneath the Inntal Autobahn overpass before hitting the big climb. At 7.4km (4.6 miles) with an average grade of 5.4% the Innsbruck climb is similar to Watopia’s Epic KOM in terms of difficulty.

Enjoy the descent, but don’t rest too much: you’ve still got a sprint coming! Head back into town and see if you can make the leaderboard for the sprint along the Inn river (the town’s namesake) before crossing the finish line.

At the UCI Worlds race the men’s elite racers will begin their race in Kufstein and ride 84.7km to Innsbruck, where they will cover this circuit 7 times. And if that isn’t painful enough, the final circuit (not part of the Zwift’s Innsbruck course at this time) is a modified one which includes an additional climb featuring 25% gradients!

Innsbruck “Achterbahn”

“Achterbahn” is German for rollercoaster, but this challenging route is a lot more work than any rollercoaster you’ve ever taken. Covering all Innsbruck roads in both directions, this figure 8 route is almost 20km longer than Watopia’s Figure 8, with 4x the elevation gain!

This is the longest route in Innsbruck. It begins at the start/finish line, but takes you over the steep reverse KOM first, then over the forward KOM before ending at the start/finish. Along the way you’ll hit the sprint next to the Inn river in both directions.

Innsbruck “Innsbruckring”

Innsbrucking is the flat(ish), “in town” portion of the Innsbruck course. Beginning and ending at the start/finish banner, this route makes a good crit race course thanks thanks to the nice little bump that is just begging for an attack.

Innsbruck “Lutscher” and “Lutscher CCW”

Innsbruck’s “Lutscher” (German for lollipop) is a lollipop route, meaning you have a lead in then one or more circuits to ride. The route begins at the start/finish banner then places you on the KOM loop for as many laps as you can handle. With Innsbruck’s steep climbs this means you can pack in a lot of climbing if you wish!

There are two Lutscher routes: the standard one and a reverse one (“Lutscher CCW”). The official routes end after you cross the KOM banner for the second time.

We have also created verified Strava segments for the KOM loop in both directions.

  • Lutscher – 24.2km (15 miles), 827m (2713′): Loop around the climb portion of the course, which finishes each lap at the KOM arch: The distance of the loop itself is about 15km; the 24.2 includes the lead-in.
  • Lutscher CCW – 22.1km (13.7), 826m (2710′): Same as above but in reverse (this is way steeper, as evidenced by the shorter total distance)

Route details:
Distance: 24.2km (15.1 miles)
Elevation Gain: 823m (2703′)

Route details (CCW):
Distance: 22.3km (13.9 miles)
