      Bison. Far faster than their physique would suggest!

       

      Horse sounds good too.

        Some great animals here.

         

        I think I'd have to go with some nimble mountain animal like a snow leopard or a mountain goat.  The way they run over boulders and leap around is fantastic.

                        Running through a city as a Tyrannosaurus rex sounds pretty exciting.

                        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
