Ok gang, it's happening!
I have applied for a permit at Croom and I am going to host a 100 mile Race in Croom, on January 16, 2010. I am working with Croom on the course, my preference is 8 loops on the 12.5 mile yellow trail, but I am open for suggestions should they not accept that route. Croom Zoom 100, or the Croom-a-Fulluna, or the Florida 100, I'll probably let you guys vote on it (there will be either a 100K or 50M option as well).
The first year, I am sure, will be relatively small, but I'd like to grow the race in the next few years. I have freed up my schedule some to work on this project, and the race already has its first two entrants! 1st Frank Sierra has made a significant contribution to the race and is up for the challenge. 2nd entrant is Pete Pfannerstill. Of course I don't even know the course or how much I'm going to have to charge, but hey, that's all technical BS that will work itself out!
Obviously, I will need all of your advice, help and or entries to get this sucker off of the ground. I'll get back at you soon with more details, but marky mark your calendar because it's on!
