The Croom ZOOM 100K/50K/25K uses the extensive trails of Croom Park. The trail winds through oak hammocks on a well-defined trail that takes runners through some of the best running terrain in Florida. This course is different than the Fools run and also different than John Holmes run.
For those who haven't havd the pleasure of running at Croom, it is a great experience. Most of the trails hav a tree canopy to keep off the sun and the terrain is beautiful and classic Florida.
The race takes place at Croom which is within the Withlacoochee State Forest. The forest was named one of the "10 Coolest Places in North America" by the World Wildlife Fund.
