There are fewer than 900 mountain gorillas left in the world. We would like to see their numbers increase but we can only achieve it with your help. Since the first Great Gorilla Run in 2003, thousands of people have donned gorilla suits and joined the 8k fun run route starting at Minster Court in the City and passing some of London’s most iconic landmarks, including the Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral.
