Great Gorilla RunThere's some serious monkey business going on in London this September; back for its 13th year the Great Gorilla Run will be bounding through the streets of the capital. Aiming to raise money to save the world's remaining gorillas, hundreds of people will be pulling on their gorilla costumes and running, jogging or walking the 8km City and Bankside route. Expect to see many humorously adapted costumes, including cheerleading gorillas prancing across Tower Bridge and ballerina gorillas perfecting their poise by the Tate Modern. Runners hoping to participate need to pay a registration fee which can be done through The Gorilla Organisation website (a gorilla costume is included!). Once you're signed up, head to the London Underwriting Centre off Mincing Lane in the City of London where the run starts and finishes and to Agenda Bar, right on the finish line, for the prize-giving ceremony.

 

About Tower Bridge

With its views of the Tower Of London and The Shard, Tower Bridge offers one of the best vantage points in the city from its spectacular glass walkways, elevated 140ft above the Thames. The East Walkway boasts fantastic views of the Docklands and the elegant Canary Wharf, while from the West Walkway you can compare the mixed architectural styles of City Hall, the Tower Of London, St Paul's Cathedral, the City, Big Ben and the London Eye.
