About This Activity

?2 Miles For 2 Hearts is a charity race in Historic Ellicott City benefiting the Elizabeth Nass Memorial Scholarship and the Rose Mayr Nursing Scholarship through the Howard Hospital Foundation.

On August 21 of 2012, our community lost two amazing young women. The train derailment in Historic Ellicott City ended the lives of Elizabeth "Liz" Nass and Rose Mayr abruptly and prematurely.

The 2 Miles For 2 Hearts memorial race raises money for their two scholarship funds while bringing families, friends and community members together to celebrate Liz's and Rose's vibrant lives. The race incorporates some of the things they loved most of all: music, exercise and food. 

Event details and schedule

The run begins at 8:30 am in front of the Howard County Circuit Courthouse at 3700 Court House Drive and ends at Lot F at Ellicott Mills Drive and Main Street where the post-race celebration will include food and music.
