The Great Gorilla Run is a running event taking place in London, UK every year since 2003.
In this event thousands of people have donned their gorilla suits run or walk the 7km City and Bankside fun run route in a move to spread awareness to save Gorilla, a critically endangered species, from extinction, as only 720 mountain gorillas left in the wild.
Every year this race takes place on third or fourth Saturday or Sunday of September.
In 2016, the Great Gorilla Run will take place on 17th September 2016.
Rated the 2nd best running event by the Independent newspaper, this is an event you won’t want to miss!
In 9 years since the race has been taking place, the event has been able to raise more than £1,000,000 for biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction projects in central Africa.
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.
