11th Annual Denver Gorilla Run
In addition to the implicit entertainment that comes with running a 5K in a full gorilla suit, this year’s run will feature new family-friendly activities, such as the Little Gorilla Obstacle Challenge. The course will weave the gorillas through scenic City Park, and finish at the Denver Zoo, where they will enjoy the Silverback After Party, hosted by Silverback Pale Ale, and admittance to the zoo for the rest of the day. Included with their registration, all new participants receive their own, brand new gorilla suit—theirs to keep! Participants will also have the opportunity to compete in the competitive “most creative gorilla” costume contest, and show off their creativity by dressing up their gorilla suits. The Denver Gorilla Run benefits the Denver-based Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund (MGCF), a non-profit organization founded in 1983.  More info www.denvergorillarun.com
