Held in conjunction with the Taste of Syracuse, Paige’s Butterfly Run brings over 2,000 runners and walkers from across Central New York to downtown Syracuse each June to participate in one of the region’s premier 5K races.

Due to COVID-19 and the chance of causing harm to the public health by bringing so many people together, for the first time ever, Paige’s Butterfly Run is going virtual from August 15 through August 20! Our goal remains the same—to put on a stellar community event while raising the critical dollars necessary to fund pediatric cancer research and patient programs at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. There will be no specific course. This means you can jog, walk, skip or dance. You can do this on the sidewalk, on a track, on a treadmill or on a trail—just remember to use recommended safety precautions and practice social distancing.

Virtual Paige’s Butterfly Run is comprised of two events:
– 5K
– 3K Fun Fitness Run/Walk
