THE MONARCH ULTRA RELAY RUN: SEPT. 19TH - NOV. 4TH, 2019 The Monarch Ultra is a 4,300km (2,671 miles) relay run following the migratory path of monarch butterflies from Peterborough, Ontario to the Cerro Pelon Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary in Macheros, Mexico. Ultra-runners were invited to explore a diversity of landscapes along mountain paths, forests, meadows, deserts, trails, and cities across the North American continent! Altogether 46 relay runners ran 50km or 100km segments over 47 days to raise awareness about the flight and plight of monarch butterflies.
