LIVE! IN-PERSON! The SPECTACULAR BLOB-TACTULAR RACE OF THE YEAR is BACK!
Steve McQueen and YOU star in the horror movie of the century! Uh...last century!
Every year, Phoenixville, PA celebrates Blobfest in honor of 1958's The BLOB. And every year, we throw a running party to help celebrate and support the historic Colonial Theatre that stars in the film! This year we are back IN PERSON for our 5K, 10K, or kids' fun-run.
All 5K/10K participants who register by June 28th will receive a unique race-themed T-shirt! And all 5K and 10K finishers will receive a 4" moving, light-up Blobfest medal!
All participants in the kids fun-run receive a finisher's ribbon and prize.
For the first time in 2022, The Blobfest 5K and 10K proudly includes a non-binary gender option.
The Blobfest is a local holiday for ALL and the RUNegades is a running club for ALL. We welcome ALL paces and faces. Any discrimination, bigotry, snide remarks, or otherwise negative gobble-dee-gook will not be tolerated. We will happily offer a full refund to anyone who signed up prior to this announcement who does not think they can be respectful of all. Simply contact us privately at email@example.com.
5K and 10K awards: The top 3 M/F/NB overall and the top 3 M/F/NB in each of the following age groups will be recognized: 14 & Under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
But that's not all!! We'll have special rewards for best dressed, craziest Blob escape-route, and most blobbiest team!
A portion of your registration fees and 100% of all donations will go to The Historic Colonial Theatre, the site of The Blob's most famous scene!
INDESCRIBABLE! INDESTRUCTIBLE! NOTHING CAN STOP IT! (is that old poster about the Blob...or YOU?)
