Event Description

Welcome to the coolest adventure of the year – Frozen: H3 presented by Fleet Feet & Billy Simons Real Estate! Same course---new management under Palmetto Ultras.

It’s like the Hell Hole Hundred, but without the scorching heat and humidity. Picture yourself conquering the same challenging course, but with a frosty twist. Don’t be fooled; this isn’t your average run.

This course has three unique sections. The first leg is pretty open and there's room to pass other runners. It's also not very technical. Sure there are some roots and rocks but nothing too gnarly. Then, once you hit the first aid station, you're off onto dirt roads for a chance to pick up the pace. The final stretch gets a tad technical, yet still super runnable.

Depending on your chosen distance, you’ll be looping through 16ish to 18ish miles of fun! As a runner, you’ll love the convenience of being close to the start/finish line, where your gear and food are always close by. No need to lug everything with you. You can drop your gear/essentials near the start/finish line so you can access it between loops or have your own personal aid station at your car or tent.

Feeling the need for some extra motivation? Pacers can join you once you’re halfway through your loops, but remember, they must sign a waiver to join in on the fun.

All runners must check in at the aid stations. If no one’s around, take the reins and check yourself in.

One of our sponsors, BeesKnees, will be on site in the afternoon (exact times TBD) for any taping/stretching/massaging needs you may have



SWAG announcement coming at a later date---if you were there in 2024 you know it's going to be awesome!

If you have family/friends/crew coming with you please add on a meal ticket when checking out so we make sure we have enough food for everyone.

If the weather permits (and if it's not one of the those random warmer January days here in Charleston) we will have a fire going in the morning and evening with stuff to make s'mores!

Cancellation/Refund/BibTransfer Policy

The race will take place rain or shine. 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

There are no refunds. I know this is frustrating but we have to plan and budget for each race. See bib transfer policy below

If you would like to change your distance you can do that here on ultrasignup before the race or the day of but you must do so before you cross the start line. There will be no distance changes after that point

If you can't make the event for whatever reason you do have the option to transfer your bib to another runner

The Trail and Use of the FMNF

The Trail

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.

Refund Policy:

Under no circumstance will refunds be issued, registrations be transferred to another person or transferred to a later date.
