A big scene in the campy horror film "The Blob" was filmed at Phoenixville's Colonial Theatre in the '50s. Screaming moviegoers run from the building as an alien creature takes over their small town.
On Sunday, July 15, fans of "The Blob" can pretend they're also being chased by a sci-fi monster during The Blobfest 5K in Phoenixville.
The 3.1-mile race, which follows a flat course, will begin at 8 a.m.
Registration is $30 until July 1. After, it will increase to $35, then $40 on race day. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Colonial Theatre.
Children can participate for free in an 800-meter fun run.
On race day, remember to run for your lives! The Blob is indescribable, indestructible and nothing can stop it!
