MANKATO — Ask any of the group of runners in Saturday’s Gorilla Fun Run if they had a good time and they’re likely to say it was more fun than, well, you probably know the rest.

The run, now in its second year, raised money for the Miracle League of North Mankato. More than 600 gorilla suit-clad runners participated this year, topping the 450 runners in last year’s run. For a $50 donation runners got a gorilla suit to run in courtesy of BuyFun.com, along with post race food and beverages at Buster’s Bar & Grill and a grab bag of other goodies.

Included in this year’s goodie bag: a banana (of course).
