This has to be one of the Craziest and funniest events I have ever seen or participated in! Two years ago, someone told me about this event and I went as a spectator. So I had to participate last year and had a great time. We actually set a World Record last year with 1,061 gorillas. If you?re not up for the run, walking, riding, etc., feel free to come just to watch or volunteer. You won?t regret it!
The 7th Annual Denver Gorilla Run is a charity fun run, walk, ride (3.5 Miles) and everyone wears a full gorilla suit to help raise funds for the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. However, you can run, walk, ride your bike, rollerblade, skateboard, unicycle, etc. Nothing motorized will be allowed! In addition to the gorilla suits, people also wear other costumes on top of the gorilla suits which are hilarious.
