Dallas Malone was one of only two runners to break 20 minutes on a hot and muggy evening in the 10th annual Daylily Dash 5K, finishing in 19 minutes, 48.3 seconds.

But that was nearly half a minute behind the winner.

“That guy who won was a real animal,” Malone lamented.

A beast, actually, who made a monkey of the rest of the field.

Matt Triick of Perry won with a time of 19:24 – wearing a full gorilla suit, complete with rubber and fur mask.

“That’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Triick, 30, said of running 3.1 miles in the costume as part of a stunt with his Middle Georgia Triathlon Club.
