About the event...
Come enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Hopatcong on a scenic bike ride, adventure walk/run and/or kayak to raise funds for NJ’s largest lake! The cycling course will go clockwise around the lake and consist of approximately 20 miles of rolling terrain. This course is not flat but, there are no significant hills that might deter those looking for an enjoyable ride. The 40 and 62 mile courses includes a hilly extension added to the middle of the 20 mile course. The adventure fun run/walk will take you in and around Hopatcong State Park with challenging hilly trails, over the sandy beach and back to the finish line. NEW this year, jump in your kayak and paddle around the lake with a choice of 2.5 or 1 mile course. Participants are welcome to participate in 1 or up to 3 events but, this is NOT a triathlon. This event will NOT be timed, come challenge yourself and GET FIT for Lake Hopatcong. For those wanting to choose 3 events our Lake Loop experts recommend the 20 mile bike ride, 5k adventure run and 2.5 kayak course. Starting times have been staggered to allow for a participants to participate in multiple events.
'GET FIT' for the lake, when you register and create your own fundraising page, reach out to friends and family to support you on your journey. Prizes will be awarded for fundraising accomplishments. Reach the $500+ level and become a Lake Loop VIP! See the GET FIT tab below for more details on your fundraising commitment and the exciting prizes and VIP experience! We met our $25,000 goal last year and we have set our event goal at $50,000 this year, your passion for Lake Hopatcong will help us get there!
