The Great Gorilla Race
No you’re not seeing things! If you’re in the City of London this Sunday the chances are you’re going to spot several hundred gorillas running through the streets.
This annual fun run raises money for the 700 remaining mountain gorillas in the world and celebrities such as Daryl Hannah and Massive Attack are already signed up.
Starting and finishing at the London Underwriting Centre, just off Mincing Lane, the race is 7km long over a fairly flat course and passes some of London’s most famous landmarks, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Tate Modern.
There is a non-refundable joining fee of £100 for all entrants and runners are requested to raise a minimum of £400 by the end of November. However, you do get to keep your gorilla suit, so you need never worry about what to wear to a fancy dress party again!
