Jefferson: Donut Trail Behind 5k

  • Smaller Small Medium Big Bigger
  • Default Helvetica Segoe Georgia Times

Welcome to the first ever "Donut Trail Behind". Our first IN PERSON race of 2020. Chip timed, donut, neck gaiter, medal and shirt included with registration 

The course is a beautiful scenic trail located in Lake Hopatcong. A recent project by the Town of Jefferson and the LH Foundation, the trail has been blazed to offer wide space for frolicking through the woods. Your first mile will bring you on challenging rollers, but don't worry, the lake and a bridge will meet you as you go to the island which features some more soft, dirt, single track. You will exit the island heading to the woods before returning back to the main trail.
