True. I raced one at the museum once. It was a photo finish but I got the best of him.

Apparently, contrary to popular belief, the species Tyrannosaurus cannot actually outrun humans. As per an article in National Geographic, the giant lizard is not known for its speed and is restricted to only brisk walking.
According to palaeontologist William Sellers from the University of Manchester and his colleagues, T-Rex probably could only reach around 12 miles an hour which is way less than the world’s fastest human, who clocks in around 27 miles an hour. Any faster and the animal would have shattered its bones.
