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 focus of the festival will be celebratory and educational in order to build community resilience and awareness for monarch conservation. We will have art installations, live music, face painting, performances, and presentations at the event, while all race participants will be invited to dress up in monarch-inspired costumes!
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.
