"I had such a great time at the Great Gorilla Run. It was a perfect day. The atmosphere was brilliant, as was the turn-out and the crazy costumes. The Great Gorilla Run really does put the 'fun' into fun run. It was a success at every level"
Adam Garcia, Actor
“Had the best time and great fun with everyone involved, the volunteers and staff at the event embraced us all with vigour. Very proud to have been a part of the event and this important charity. Pleased as punch with getting a (few) photo(s) with Bill Oddie! Legend! Made my day.
Love Regina Gorilla! xx"

Run Round Up
We did it again!
The Great Gorilla Run last year was a roaring success! Almost 500 participants took part and legendary TV conservationist Bill Oddie came again to show his support alongside Illusionist Uri Geller. Over £100,000 has been raised!
This enables the Gorilla Organization to continue its groundbreaking community conservation, education and development projects in Africa, so a big gorilla thanks to everyone making it possible.
