Rio Frio on Ice 5k Run/Walk

You have an entirely different perspective when running down the middle of a winding, scenic river.  The Rio Frio 5K on Ice experience is so unusual that it was featured in Runner's World magazine even before its first year.  The entire course is ON the Rio Grande River at Alamosa, Colorado in the middle of the beautiful San Luis Valley near the New Mexico border.
