Fifth Annual “LHF Lake Loop” Set For September 24, 2017

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to improving Lake Hopatcong for all, now and in the years to come, will be hosting the fifth annual “LHF Lake Loop” on September 24, 2017, at Hopatcong State Park.  

The event includes three scenic routes to bike around Lake Hopatcong (riders can choose a 20-mile, 40-mile, or 62-mile challenge), as well as a 1.5-mile or 5K adventure walk or trail run on the State Park grounds and a 2.5 mile paddling route on Lake Hopatcong, off the State Park beach. Participants are able to rent a kayak, canoe or paddle board for the event during the online registration process.

Last year’s dog walk option will return so furry friends can enjoy the adventure trail run/walk path from 8am-10:30am. Dogs must be on a leash no longer than six foot and individuals will need to clean up after their pooch. Pet food and supplies will also be collected and donated to a local animal shelter.

This is not a timed event and attendees can do any combination of the activities they choose. Starting times have been staggered to allow individuals to partake of multiple events. Registration is available for individuals or teams at www.lakehopatcongfoundation.org/events/lake-loop. The registration fee is $45 if pre-registered by midnight on September 22. Day of registration is available starting at 7am on September 24 and is $65.

Prizes and perks—including a VIP tent—will be awarded to the top fundraising individuals that raise $500 or more. VIP participants that raise $1,000 or more will receive a gorgeous Lake Hopatcong blanket.

All LHF Lake Loop partakers receive free food and drink the day of the event provided by local restaurants, a t-shirt and entertainment by several area bands.

A plethora of sponsorships opportunities are available and begin at just $100. Contact Jennifer DeWitt at jennifer@lakehopatcongfoundation.org for more information.
