Subway - Walk in the Park GeoChallenge

                                                                           
Visit Washington State Parks & Win Prizes!

To celebrate the great outdoors, State Parks and ParksByNature Network® are partnering with SUBWAY® restaurants to launch the newest geochallenge, Walk in the Park. The geochallenge features state parks in 16 Western Washington counties: King, Snohomish, Chelan, Clallam, Douglas, Grays Harbor, Island, Jefferson, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Pierce, Skagit, Thurston and Whatcom. As participants discover the natural beauty of Washington by visiting the exceptional state parks in the geochallenge, they will have a chance to win $3,000 worth of prizes. The Walk in the Park GeoChallenge runs through Dec. 31, 2014 (see the official rules for details).

Washington State Parks Mobile App (Pocket Ranger)
To get started, participants must download the Official Washington State Parks Pocket Ranger® mobile app onto their mobile device (from either the App Store or Google Play), select the “Challenges” icon, pick the Walk in the Park Challenge, register a username and password and start your challenge! The entire GeoChallenge is done digitally using the advanced GPS mapping features found on the Washington State Parks Pocket Ranger® mobile app.

Tracking Points
To keep you motivated along the way, you can rack up points by recording each visit. Easy-to-reach parks will earn you five points, while more challenging, out-of-the way locales can snag you up to 20 points. Engage in friendly competition by keeping tabs on other players via the leaderboard on the Pocket Ranger Exchange website (you must be registered to view the GeoChallenge Leaderboard). Track which parks you've visited and which you have yet to explore as you embark on the Washington State Parks Walk in the Park GeoChallenge!
