Alamosa School district's annual Fun Run

The many faces of the
fun run…
Wednesday’s Annual Fall Fun Run at Alamosa Elementary brought out a hodge-podge of looks from kindergarten through fifth grade students. From smiles to expressions of determination or exhaustion, the run offers a feeling of accomplishment for the students when all is said and done.
