DENVER (AP) -- An unusual Halloween charity race has set a world record.

The organizers of the Denver Gorilla Run say the 1,061 people ran 3.5 miles dressed as gorillas. That was enough to set 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.
