MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Hundreds of people zoomed through the zoo Thursday night.
The annual four-mile race and one-mile fun run wound through the Memphis Zoo and Overton Park and ended back at the zoo and included a post-race party with food, drinks, and live music.
This race is part of the M-Town Race Series presented by University Clinical Health, which features Zoom Through the Zoo, Harbortown 3 Mile, Orion 5K and the Stars and Stripes 5K.
In an ironic twist, Thursday is also World Turtle Day. Zookeepers held special programs Thursday that featured our shelled, but slow-moving, friends.
