Memphis Zoo hosts Zoom Through the Zoo

Hundreds of people zoomed through the zoo Thursday night.

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.
