The OKC Zoo’s MONARCH MADNESS 5K / Fun Run is an officially timed, family-friendly run benefitting monarch butterfly conservation!

The course wraps around Zoo lake and ends inside the Zoo, mimicking the monarch’s epic 3,000-mile winter migration. Runners will soar past Niagara Falls, Chicago, Nashville, Oklahoma City, San Antonio and flutter into Mexico.
