I just got an active 2 to help me track my running. I went into the health app to figure out how to visualize my route but shockingly there was no option.
Surely an inexpensive and fairly recent watch like an active 2 would have this basic feature. Am I missing something? Is it not possible to track the time and distance and route of a run?

If you mean a rudimentary route map displayed on your watch, scroll down below the logged statistics. You need to have GPS ("location") on the watch enabled and check that the GPS icon turned from blinking to steady green before you start running.
Open the "workouts" widget without selecting "running" to let GPS acquire your position before you click on the specific workout to start it.
If the watch does not have internet connection during the run, you can open the map display later, when it has connection, and it will download to show your route overlaid on the street map. (This 'graphic' can be saved to the watch Gallery by a screenshot command, and from there copied to your phone.)
(Note: I don't know a way to get the digital route data to your phone.)
The route map doesn't have to be on the watch, just on the mobile app so I can save or share it. It would also have standard metrics like distance, time, etc. The Samsung Health app surprisingly doesn't offer that feature. Under Armour appears to so will probably switch to that.
