You may have noticed a large number of runners this past Saturday running briskly at the Fort Clinch entrance, on South Fletcher and at Peter’s Point.  450 runners were registered for the ½ marathon and 255 for the 5 K for the Zooma run.  Zooma is an organization formed by Brae Blackley about 6 years ago. Her sister, Brooke Reiley, also from Jacksonville, joined her to run this group “ to promote good health for women.”

Zoom 2The Ritz­-Carlton was the host hotel this weekend and featured a fitness expo Friday night, an after-party on Saturday and massages, yoga and other women’s healthy experiences, as well as shopping.  For more information and a list of the winners go to www.zoomarun.com .
