Miles for Monarchs

Miles for Monarchs is a twice-yearly event held by Wild One’s partner, Monarch Joint Venture (MJV) that corresponds to the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) fall and spring migration. Each fall, North American monarchs travel 3,000 miles from their summer breeding grounds to overwintering locations. Learn more about the migration with MJV’s interactive map.  


Miles for Monarchs is more than just a run—it’s a movement aimed at raising awareness and funds for the conservation of these iconic pollinators. The event invites individuals and teams to log miles as a symbolic representation of the long migration journey that monarch butterflies undertake each year. The fall “migration” will be hosted from August 28 – October 1.
