Great Gorilla Run

Date & Location

Minster Court, London

Organiser’s Description

Since the first Great Gorilla Run in 2003, thousands of people have donned gorilla suits and joined the 8k run starting at Minster Court in the City, and passing some of London’s most iconic landmarks. Now in its 14th year, this incredible event has raised well over £2 million for gorilla conservation and poverty reduction projects in central Africa. There are just 880 mountain gorillas left in the World. We need to see their numbers increase, but we can only achieve it with your help. On the day, the crowds will cheer you on every step of the way, and celebrity ambassadors will welcome you across the finish line and place a medal round your neck.
