Jersey Gorilla Will Run The London Marathon

Jersey Gorilla will be running the London Marathon in a brand-new custom-made outfit.

Will Highfield has raised £63,000 for Durrell since 2019, when he first ran the Jersey Marathon in costume.

He has also completed the Island Walk, the Centurion Running One Up Challenge and a PanGorilla run in Cambridge.

This year, Will has decided to take on the London Marathon in his brand new costume.

He began running to raise money to build a new indoor gorilla home at Jersey Zoo, but continued participating in sponsored runs to support the Wildlife Conservation Trust recover after the pandemic.

His efforts led him to be named a finalist in the Pride of Britain Awards for Fundraiser of the Year.
