The Frozen Heart is a low-key winter race for trail loving runners. Runners of all abilities are encouraged to challenge themselves to complete one of the three available distances.
This is the 4th annual Frozen Heart and Southern Maryland's only ultra event!! The 3 loop course provides for 3 event distances - 50K, 34K, 17K, or 3 person 50k relay. And, NEW for 2017 is the Chesapeake Challenge!
Frozen Heart proceeds benefit those in need in Southern Maryland:
- WARM (Wrapping Arms 'Round Many) which works in partnership with the Three Oaks Center to provide safe and welcoming shelter during the coldest months of the year to adults impacted by homelessness. WARM offers a place to sleep, two hot meals, and a sense of community to program guests.
- Southern MD Veterans Initiative which focuses on solving problems facing veterans and their families by providing necessary services and follow-on support through local community agencies so that no one has to be homeless.
- St Marys Caring Soup Kitchen
The Frozen Heart is organized by the Chesapeake Bay Running Club (CBRC) an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote physical fitness in Southern Maryland. CBRC sponsors championship road and trail races, fun runs/walks, and other social events. We welcome and encourage the experienced as well as the inexperienced runner/walker and recognize our people with various awards for activities throughout the year.
