Running wild through the streets has a lot of appeal. Imagine running wild through the jungle. Better yet, imagine your kids running wild through the jungle. Oh, wait, that's fifth grade. Never mind. The Fort Worth Zoo, which beats the Dallas Zoo by a mile, gets two-leggers moving fast in its 9th annual Zoo Run Run on Saturday. Stay for the Wild Wonders live animal presentation. Then mosey to downtown's Main Street Arts Festival, where the zoo has a booth for art by animals. Registration starts at 6 a.m. Races include the Cheetah Chase Adult 5K at 7 a.m., the Cub Crawl 1-mile Fun Run at 8 a.m. and the Zebra Zoom Family 5K at 8:30 a.m. at the Fort Worth Zoo, 1989 Colonial Parkway. Call 817-759-7385 or visit fortworthzoo.org.
Sat., April 22, 6 a.m.
