Map My Mayorthon Downtown 
Downtown offers several interesting running/jogging/walking opportunities. Downtown Vision has made it easy for you by mapping various running/walking routes located within the downtown area. These routes vary in difficulty and distance, from a 1 mile loop through the downtown core to 9.5 mile loop that crosses both the Main Street and Acosta bridges.

Citizens Walking Map
This map was created by Downtown Vision and shows what downtown venues and attractions are within a 5-15 minute walking distance of the downtown core.
