Awareness Run

The Monarch presents Monarch Ultra Relay Run

Date:Thursday, September 19, 2019
Location:    See event details for location.
The Monarch Ultra is a 4,300km (2,670 miles) relay run following the migratory path of monarch butterflies from Peterborough, Ontario to the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico. Relay runners, running in pairs when possible, will run approximately 50km or 100km segments over 47 days. This will be one of the world's longest relay runs, amplified even more by the monarch migration. The Monarch Ultra is a celebration of two types of superheroes: ultra-runners and monarch butterflies. Both cover long distances using their incredible strength and endurance to arrive at a new unknown destination. Participants of the Monarch Ultra relay run will run the same corridor that monarch butterflies make in two months! Most importantly, the Monarch Ultra is an opportunity to connect communities in Canada, USA and Mexico with common goals of Earth stewardship and biodiversity conservation. This will be the experience of a lifetime for all of those involved! Register early to save your spot!
