6th Annual Austin Gorilla Run Set for Saturday

In a city full of run-of-the-mill 5K’s, the Austin Gorilla Run has always stood apart for it’s uniqueness. Nowhere else can you sign up to support the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund and get a suit (choice of gorilla or banana) that is yours to keep.

The 6th annual 5K is happening on Saturday at Camp Mabry with an expected crowd of 500-plus runners (primates?), and packet pickup starts today from 5 to 7 PM at Haymaker (2310 Manor Rd).

Since 2011 the event has helped raise over $200,000 to contribute to the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, a nonprofit focusing on preservation in Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Proceeds from the race directly benefit the Ruth Keesling Wildlife Health and Research Center in Kampala, Uganda. The brand new facility will include two main lecture halls with seating for 100 students, two large scale research laboratories, postgraduate and grant research offices.

Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers, top fundraiser, most creative gorilla suit, senior gorilla, furthest traveled, and largest team. If you are a returning runner and have your gorilla suit hanging in the closet, entry fee is just $40 for the run. Until Saturday the non-returnee fee is $99 for adults and $30 for “little gorillas”.

If you’d prefer to run as a banana, the fee until Saturday is $60.

On-site registration is available race morning but participants are encouraged to sign up in advance. And if you’ve never been to Camp Mabry – located off Mopac and 35th – don’t forget your ID which is required to enter the gates. The 5K starts at 9 AM, followed by a party featuring Silverback Pale Ale from Thirsty Planet, food trucks and music.
