Much of the route follows dirt backroads crisscrossing the farmland as teams run towards Clarinda (the birthplace of Glenn Miller) and then to Blanchard, a small town just two blocks north of Missouri and the start of the rails-to-trails Wabash Trace Nature Trail, one of Iowa'as premier trails.

The Wabash Trace Trail winds through the scenic Iowa countryside for sixty-tree miles to the outskirts of Council Bluffs. The route will then take teams to Lake Manawa State Park, past the Western Historic Trails Center, and then to the Missouri River, where the last runner on the team will cross the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, finishing at Miller's Crossing and the big finish line party.
