PICTURES: Monkey Mile runners go out in the midday sun
People dressed as primates have walked a mile in aid of charity.
About 100 adults and children took part in the noon run in temperatures topping 20 degrees – many wearing full monkey suits.
Others wore masks, sported tails or even carried inflatable bananas.
The first-ever Big Monkey Mile on Sunday raised money for the charity Wild Futures, which runs the Monkey Sanctuary near Looe, Cornwall.
Each runner who completed a mile at Plymouth's Central Park was handed a medal.
Families were entertained with activities including bouncy castles and face painting.
Charity spokesman Hayley Dann said: "We had just over 100 people taking part. Most people managed to find ears or tails, but some went out in style in full monkey suits.
"We are hoping this becomes an annual event."
She hoped the event would raise £2,000.
Wild Futures finds a home for monkeys which have been harmed or been rescued from the pet trade.
The sanctuary looks after 37 monkeys and depends entirely on donations.
