Join us for a scenic 5K run or walk along the Umpqua River in Elkton. There is a FREE KIDS’ RACE for youth 10 and under before the race begins.
Stay around after the race for Blooms & Butterflies! Enjoy live music, craft vendors, food and tours of Fort Umpqua throughout the day. Visit our Monarchs and Painted Ladies in the Butterfly Pavilion and best of all, help us kick off the season at ECEC!
The course starts at ECEC’s Native Plant Park, follows River Road through town, crosses Elk Creek, and ends back at ECEC. Run or walk along the banks of the Umpqua River while on your route, and show off your best butterfly attire to win a prize! Finally, celebrate the return of the butterflies to our Butterfly Pavilion with friends and family while you’re here.
