DENVER (AP) - An unusual Halloween charity race in which runners dress as gorillas has set a world record.
Denver Gorilla Run organizers say the 1,061 people who ran 3.5 miles dressed as gorillas were certified as a Guinness World Record for the most people in gorilla costume.
The annual Halloween race raises money for the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. The fund raises money to continue the work of Dian Fossey, whose research was the subject of the movie ``Gorillas in the Mist.''
First-time Denver Gorilla Run Racers pay almost $100 to participate - but registration includes a gorilla suit.
