Welcome to Frozen: H3! This event, is identical to the Hell Hole Hundred with the exception of the ridiculous heat and humidity. We operate on the same course and come across some of the same aid stations! Sounds easy…right?!

Nothing Comes Easy...
Upon completing the required loops the 60k (both day and night) and 100 mile runners are sent back down the trail in reverse to make up any missing distance from your required loops. Distance will be computed prior to the start of the event and you will be informed of your distance via a sign at the start/finish area. Heading down the trail in reverse and then heading back to finish the event has proven to be one of the most difficult aspects of the race.

• 100k in 22 hours

Morning of the event at the START/FINISH AREA (Jericho Horse Trail/Start/Finish area) from 6-6:30AM
Running this distance is going to suck. The only reason I will cancel this event is if the forest is on fire, there is a hurricane and zombies are out on the trail. If for any reason the event has to be shut down due to extreme weather, natural disaster or zombies on the course (other than the runners…), you will be pulled from the course or held at an aid station until you can be removed from the course. Please, no arguing if this should happen. It is for your own safety.
The Trail and Use of the FMNF
Local time: 6:33 AM
All events take place within the Hell Hole Swamp located in the heart of the Francis Marion National Forest located outside Charleston, South Carolina.
The trail we run on is called the Jericho Horse Trail, it’s a 16.3 mile loop through the forest consisting of dirt fire roads, single track trail and double track trail. It is a flat trail that is unforgiving. Past participants found it difficult due to the fact that there are zero hills, little elevation change and when they were on the course, they didn't know when to walk.
Under no circumstance will refunds be issued, registrations be transferred to another person or transferred to a later date.
