GREAT GORILLA RUN 2006 - Edinburgh and London

Here's the Scotsman Online with news of Edinburgh's first Great Gorilla Run, taking place in Holyrood Park on July 16th. It joins the London Great Gorilla Run, taking place on 24th September. Please show your support and be an Gorilla for the day, or go and cheer and sponsor those who do dress up like Gorillas in the heat of the day.
THEY are usually spotted in the mist-covered mountains of Africa.

But hundreds of gorillas will be seen in the unlikely setting of Holyrood Park this summer.

For around 400 runners, all clad in gorilla suits, are to take part in Edinburgh's first Great Gorilla Run.

The run was launched in memory of murdered scientist Dian Fossey, whose story was immortalised in 1980s film Gorillas in the Mist.
Here's the link to the official Great Gorilla Run website with links to application pages for the Edinburgh Great Gorilla Run (16th July 2006) and London Great Gorilla Run (24th September 2006).
