For over a century, Roxbury High School graduates have answered our nation’s call to defend our freedom, to aid our friends and allies, and to turn back aggressors. Numerous young men and women have traded in the navy blue and gold of the Gaels for the colors of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. They have brought honor and distinction upon themselves and made their school, community, and nation proud.

What we Learned in 2016

While in 2016 we had a little rain, it didn’t slow down the participation from people that came from around the State to join this event.

2017 Anticipated Bike Ride

The cycling course will go clockwise around the lake and consist of approximately 20 miles of rolling terrain.  This is a great course for experienced cyclists, weekend warriors or riders who want to stretch their legs and enjoy the ride.   As the name suggests this route loops the lake and offers many lake views that you can truly appreciate from a bike.  Along the way you can also appreciate some of the amazing homes and historic sites as you ride.  Although you may have driven some of these roads, they will seem very different when enjoyed from the saddle of a bike. This course is not flat but, there are no significant hills that might deter those looking for an enjoyable ride. This is not a race.   Go at your own pace and enjoy the ride. 

If you are an experienced cyclist who is looking for more of a challenge, the 40 and 62 mile courses include a hilly extension added to the 20-mile course.   You’ll enjoy the same amazing scenery while challenging yourself with the additional mileage as well as the more challenging terrain.  No trikes or training wheeled bicycles allowed.  Helmets are required.

2017 Anticipated Adventure Run/Walk 1.5 mile or 5K

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.   This is also not a race.  Run or Walk. 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. The course is 1.5 miles long and those running the 5k will run/walk the course twice.  Learn more about the Salt Shakers Running Club by checking them out www.saltshakersrun.com and run with them on Tuesday nights!

2017 Anticipated Dog Walk

Bring your furry friend and tackle the adventure trail run/walk course.  You will have a choice to walk 1.5 miles or do the lap twice and complete the 5k course.  You will be expected to clean up after your dog so please come prepared.  The dog walk course will be open between 8am-10:30am on the day of the event.

The Lake Paddle

Paddle around the lake on a 2.5 mile course.   Enjoy the perspective paddling quietly through the water.   Push off and experience the peaceful quiet beauty of Lake Hopatcong.  Presented by The Lake Hopatcong Paddling Club, club members will mark and patrol the course to provide a safe and fun day of paddling.  Participants may use their own kayaks/paddleboards/canoes at their own risk.  Coast guard approved life jackets are required for all paddling participants. Kayaks/paddleboards/canoes will be available for rent for $30 if pre-registered.  Tandem kayaks are welcome but, each participant must be registered.

Join one of more events:

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.  Those looking to push themselves to the max consider what we are calling the Bertrand's Beast:  62 mile cycle course, 5k run, 2.5 mile paddle ride.
