Run so they can fly! The Oklahoma City Zoo is hosting the first Monarch Madness 5K run and 1 mile Fun Run/Walk to raise funds for monarch butterfly conservation.
Over the past 20 years, the population of this iconic species has declined by over 80% due to loss of habitat in North America. Monarchs make an epic 3,000 mile journey from Canada to Mexico for the winter, then back to Canada for the spring.
Registration $35 per adult / $25 per child (ages 3 to 12)
Registrants can choose to participate in either the 5K run (Starting at 8 AM) with the entire course being outside the Zoo and finishing inside the Zoo or the 1 mile Fun Run/Walk which takes place inside the Zoo starting at 8:30 AM
