Lake Loop 5k or 1.5-Mile Trail Run – What to Expect

The 2018 Lake Loop 5k or 1.5-mile trail 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. The varied terrain will be fun and interesting and will give you a new appreciation for Hopatcong State Park.

Presented by members of Salt Shakers trail running club, this course promises to be one of the more unique run/walks you’ve participated in.

A Trail Run for Any Level

Run or walk this 1.5-mile course – those completing the 5k will run/walk the course twice. This trail allows people of any fitness level to challenge themselves, to whatever degree they are physically capable.  With the shorter 1.5-mile option and fun, varied terrain, it’s also great for families!

New This Year

The 5k trail run is sanctioned by USATF this year and will be timed with awards presented at the end.

Event Times

10:00 am – 12:30 pm
