RUNegades Presents The Inaugural Blobfest 5k and Children's Fun Run!

News Release
For Immediate Release

The Inaugural Blobfest 5k and Children's Fun Run!

Phoenixville, PA, June 17, 2018 -- Phoenixville’s most unique local holiday is about to get a little more whacky! The 2018 Blobfest, a three-day festival organized by the Colonial Theatre, will include the inaugural Blobfest 5k and Children’s 800 meter Fun Run on Sunday July 15th at 8am.

Directed by the RUNegades, Phoenixville’s rebelliously unconventional non-profit running and events group, the Blobfest 5k will feature strange sights and campy “Blobstacles” as participants run, walk (or ooze) their way to the finish line. Costumed pacers will offer runners the chance to “beat the blob” and achieve their goal times, and adventurous participants are invited to run in Blob-inspired costumes.

The race will begin under the Gay Street Bridge (the location of the weekly farmer’s market) and take participants up the Schuylkill River Trail along French Creek. The course is FAST, FLAT, and most definitely FUN!

The first 100 participants who register will receive a unique Blobfest 5k T-shirt and a limited edition decal. The top three males and females in each age group will be awarded medals and the top three overall male and female finishers will also receive movie night packages for two provided by the Colonial Theatre.

Though the race will offer day-of registration, runners are encouraged to register early to take advantage of reduced rates. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Colonial Theatre.
