Uk: (England) Only in London – Thousands of Gorillas Are on the Streets !!

Hundreds of gorillas on the streets of London !!

This is not your average fun run –  it’s the GREAT GORILLA RUN!

SATURDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2011

London’s best all-costume charity fun run – 1,000 people, all dressed as gorillas and going ape for a day.

“This is the most fun event for conservation going on anywhere in the world”   Bill Oddie

Since the first Great Gorilla Run in 2003, thousands of people have donned their gorilla suits and run, jogged or walked the 7km City and Bankside fun run route that takes in sights such as Tower Bridge and The Tate Modern.

If you’re looking for something unique and if you like dressing up, this is the charity fun run for you.

By doing the Great Gorilla Run, you’ll be playing a crucial role in helping save the remaining 720 mountain gorillas left in the wild.

Here’s what a previous Great Gorilla runner had to say:

“First can I thank you for organising such a hilarious event. Sheer genius. I haven’t run and laughed so much – ever! You should all be rightly proud of what you’ve achieved.”

The gorilla run team will provide you with great support in the lead-up to the run to ensure you reach your fundraising target and are in shape for the race.

And on the day, you’ll feel like a star as the crowds cheer you on every step of the way
