Why Salt Lake City:
Visit Utah in April when all is waking up from its winter sleep. Spring tulips are in full bloom, the sun warms the valley floor while mountain sloops still glisten with white pristine brilliance. Tour museums, enjoy fine dining, visit Olympic venues, listen to the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir, golf, hike, mountain bike, and more. Big-city cosmopolitan meets alpine resort in Salt Lake. Only in Salt Lake can you stroll through the heart of downtown, and just twenty minutes later, explore a mountain meadow. Come see why Salt Lake City is considered one of the friendliest cities in America.
Starts at the Olympic Legacy Bridge on the campus of the University of Utah, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic & Paralympic Athlete's Village. The gentle course then skirts through the municipalities of Holladay, Murray, South Salt Lake and Salt Lake City and County. The route runs around the base of the towering Wasatch Mountains, passes by cozy neighborhoods and elegant estates and winds through Salt Lake's legendary wide streets, into the city center, via Liberty Park.
Here, the music will absolutely rock, the energy will surge, and crowds of enthusiastic spectators will cheer participants on, all the way to the spectacular finish at the Olympic Legacy Plaza at The Gateway, in downtown Salt Lake.
