About the Race
Phoenixville's own RUNegades have partnered with the historic Colonial Theatre to bring you a one-of-a-kind running event in celebration of Phoenixville's most unconventional local holiday. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Colonial.
This FLAT, FAST, and FUN course will begin under the Gay Street Bridge (the site of the Phoenixville Farmer's Market), continue over the Phoenix Column Truss Bridge and up a scenic section of the SRT beside French Creek. We'll complete a one-mile loop on the SRT before turning around at High Street. 
All participants who register by July 5th are guaranteed a unique Blobfest-5K race T-shirt.
