Many interesting creatures can be seen scurrying around the Greenville Zoo on any given day, but Saturday morning was the first time runners ever competed in the park.

The "Zoom through the Zoo" 5K run began in Cleveland Park at 8 a.m. and nearly a mile of the course took place inside the zoo.

Participating runners and walkers passed by the elephants, lions, giraffes and large cats of the zoo, according to organizers.

The run served as a fundraiser for Friends of the Greenville Zoo.
