Austin Gorilla Run 2016

The Austin Gorilla Run 2016 will take place at Camp Mabry this year on Saturday, January 30th. Visit to learn more, buy your gorilla suit, and sign up for the 5K run (unfortunately no bikes this year:-()! Note the gorilla packet pick-up location dates and times. This is a family friendly event and you do not have to be over 21 years of age to participate.

Join us for post run fun at the after party where there will be food from local food vendors, Thirsty Planet beer, and a live DJ! A big thank you to 3rd Base Austin who will provide Philly sliders and Bloody Mary's, BlackFinn AmeriPub who will provide sandwiches and chips, and Bearded Brothers who are kindly donating their all-natural energy bars.

Thirsty Planet is a proud to sponsor the Austin Gorilla Run again this year in support of the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. We are brewing up our Silverback Pale Ale and donating the majority of the proceeds to the endangered Mountain Gorillas. To further our support, the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund is our Charity of the Month for December and January with our tasting room gratuities going towards the cause.

To gain momentum for the run, join us for the Gorilla Run Pub Crawl on West 6th Street this year on Saturday, January 23rd. Participants will complete a gorilla stamp card to redeem for a Gorilla Run t-shirt!

*Drinking is not required to participate or to complete a stamp card.
