Elkton's 16th Annual Butterfly Run


Kick off the 2023 Blooms & Butterflies Festival with a scenic 5K Run/Walk along the Umpqua River! Pre-register before 10:00 p.m. on 5/31 to secure your spot for just $20 and get a FREE Butterfly Run t-shirt in your requested size. All proceeds go towards supporting ECEC’s activities and programs!

Kids are invited to run/walk the 5k this year for free! Kids can also choose to participate in a ¼ mile, self-paced option in the native plant park if they do not want to do the 5K. Run or walk at your own pace, then come back to get lunch and enjoy the Blooms & Butterflies Festival! Enjoy activities, live music, home & garden vendors, food, and tours of Butterfly Pavilion and Fort Umpqua throughout the day. Join us for a full day of festivities and help us kick off the season at ECEC!
