SUNDAY, OCT 15 - PETERBOROUGH, ON RACE / FESTIVAL
The Monarch Ultra is planning Peterborough's first Monarch Butterfly Festival and 10km Race this fall at Millennium Park. The 10km race will start at Millennium Park and will wind along the Rotary Trail and back. The race will also be an opportunity to fundraise for the conservation of monarch sanctuaries in central Mexico. We will be working with our Mexican partners to support reforestation efforts in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.
THE FESTIVAL The focus of the Monarch Butterfly Festival will be celebratory and educational in order to build community resilience and awareness for monarch conservation. Join us after the race for live music, crafts, poetry, dancers, performers, face painting, books, informational booths, and speakers. And for the first time in Peterborough, we will have a Mariachi band performing at the festival!
