On the bike, you’ll whiz by the Washington Monument & Lincoln Memorial on your way back from Rock Creek Parkway, before turning and heading towards the Pentagon.

Out on the run, you’ll pass by the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial when you run around the tidal basin, all before crossing the finish line at West Potomac Park.
