About this event

VENUE CHANGE - instead of the usual Croom Park, this year's race will take place at San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park.

Date: Saturday April 3, 2021  (rescheduled a number of times from the 2020 event because of coronavirus). Times: 6:00 am - 50 Mile, 7:00 am - 50K / 16 Mile Location: Croom Trails - Brooksville, FL 

The 25th ANNUAL Croom Fools Runs course is a hit by everyone who does the race. The trails wind through oak hammocks on a well defined trail that takes runners through some of the best terrain in Florida. The Forest Service has set the race field at 250 runners so register early to ensure a slot. 

The Fools Run Races There are 3 races that are part of the Fools Run Races - 50 Mile Fools Run, 50K I'm Not A Fool Run, and John Holmes 16 Mile Run. The main running trail is a 16 Mile loop. The 50 Mile race does 3 loops, the 50K does 2 loops, and the 16 Mile does 1 loop. Water Stops / Aid StationsThere will be 3 water stops / aid stations along the loop and 16 Mile runners will have 3 water stops. 50 Mile runners with 3 loops will have 12 water stops / aid stations and. 50K runners with 2 loops will have 8 water stops / aid stations. Since this is a loop course, runners of the 50M/50K will have a chance to go through the main staging area during the race and can access drop bags. The aid stations will have water, sports drink, gels, and some food, but understand that this is a trail run and there will not be stops every mile. The locations of the aid stations can be seen by going to the link on the Trails page of this website.Pre-RaceRace packets can be picked up from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm on Friday night before the race. The packet pickup will be at the same location as the start/finish of race which is only a short distance from the race hotel. You will also be able to pick up the race packets the morning of the race if you are unable to make it Friday night. The race has a total limit of 300 runners and a limit of 150 16M runners.
