Denver Gorilla Run


Get your inner Gorilla on and go bananas at the 14th Annual Denver Gorilla Run. Did you know that at one time there were less than 250 Mountain Gorillas? Thanks to Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, one of our closest relatives is rebounding, but more needs to be done to save the 880 remaining and help increase the population. Plus we are pulling out the cuteness card, so how can you turn down this face?

The Gorilla Run is a charity fun run with a difference. Everyone who takes part wears a full gorilla or banana suit and helps raise funds for Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, the international charity working to save the world's 880 remaining mountain gorillas and keeping Dian Fossey's dream alive for the past 32 years.

  • Run or Walk a fun 5K in a gorilla or banana suit
  • Gorilla/banana suits are yours to keep (plus take care of your Halloween Costume too)
