A run through Old Town (the old Spanish colonial town) is a great way to experience some of Albuquerque’s history. See folk art sites and two hundred year old churches, and enjoy the sounds of Mariachi bands and Flamenco dancers. There is also a variety of restaurants, art galleries and bars to explore in the area as well. Our route starts at the Old Town Park, adjacent to the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, and takes you a quarter mile down on the sidewalk past the San Felipe de Neri Church and down to the Rio Grande, looping back up through West Park. For variety, you can run on a couple of the interior Old Town streets, Romero St. and San Felipe. Enjoy this is a standalone run or add on with some of the Rio Grande pathway sections.
