The virtual Lake Loop Challenge offers participants a chance to get moving, have fun, and raise funds to support a healthy community and a healthy Lake Hopatcong.
Back by popular demand, we’re bringing you another great virtual activity challenge, from October 8-15, where you can have fun, get fit, and raise funds to support a healthy and vibrant Lake Hopatcong. Whether you're walking, running, biking, paddling, doing yoga, jumping rope - it all counts towards our goal, as we come together as a community to get active for a combined 2,021 hours/miles and raise $50,000 to support Lake Hopatcong!
On Sunday, October 17 from 12:30 pm -3:30 pm, you and your cheering sections are invited to join us for an awards ceremony and celebration at Hopatcong State Park, where we will celebrate another successful Lake Loop! Bring a chair and come prepared to enjoy a few hours of music, food, a beer tent, and fun! All registered participants will receive a voucher for a free food item, and the first beer from the beer tent is FREE. For all others, food and drink will be available for purchase. We hope you'll join us!
* Public safety is of critical importance and COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC and Local/State health officials will be followed. Any updates will be provided on this page.
Registration is open, and kids 12 and under are FREE (look for the age-based pricing button while registering). For each wave of registration, participants will be entered in drawings for prizes, so register early and potentially win more - just for registering! We'll be keeping everyone connected here, on our RunSignUp page, on email, and through social media.
Registered participants are the wheels that keep the Lake Loop fundraiser rolling! As a thank you for being part of the event, every 2 weeks, we’ll enter all participants in a drawing to win a prize - just for registering! Register early and have a better shot at winning more prizes. If your name is pulled in the first round, you can still win in the second and third.
Registered participants will also receive a voucher for lunch and one free beer at our October 17 Awards Ceremony & Celebration at Hopatcong State Park, which will have music, refreshments, and camaraderie around a great virtual event and job well done!
When registering, a fundraising page will automatically be generated for you that you will be prompted to personalize. Add your photo, a catchy tagline, a goal, your story. We encourage everyone to take a minute and have a little fun filling out this section. When you're done registering, you'll receive two emails, one confirming your registration and one with your unique fundraising page link. This is the link to share with your support network of friends, family, and neighbors, so they can make a donation in support of your activity. They can also make a donation by clicking "donate" on the registration page (which can also be earmarked to you).
Prizes will be awarded to individuals and teams who achieve the most hours/miles from October 8-15. To submit your hours/miles, click the "Submit Your Activities Here" button from the menu bar on our RunSignUp registration page. There will be two options: activities with miles and activities without miles, where you can track hours and miles accordingly. Leave the type of activity in the comment section so we know if you walked, ran, paddled, jumped rope, etc.
