(UNDATED) - You can get in shape, experience the outdoors and earn a shot at winning prizes by taking the Department of Natural Resources Fitness Challenge.

The challenge is sponsored by DNR's Division of State Parks & Reservoirs. The challenge entails walking, biking, paddling or swimming at least 25 miles inside one or more of Indiana's state parks and reservoirs between now and Oct. 31.

Indiana has 24 state parks and eight reservoirs. Learn more about them at or download an Indiana Recreation Guide at

Horseback riders can join too, but must complete 100 miles on state park or reservoir trails.

Those who pass the challenge will be entered in a drawing for prizes that include annual passes and permits, subscriptions to Outdoor Indiana magazine, DNR campground gift cards and more.

Fitness challenge participants must log their visits to state park or reservoir properties and get a signature from staff each time.

"Participants often comment on how this has helped them explore new and unique outdoor places in Indiana while getting great exercise," says Ginger Murphy, Assistant Director for Stewardship for Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs. "We are happy to continue this challenge for another year!"
