The Official Marketing, Rules & Prizes

Delaware State Parks and Nemours Health & Prevention Services are working together to encourage children and families to take the Delaware State Parks Trail Challenge and support Nemours "5-2-1, Almost None" initiative, plus win great prizes!

With more than 80 scenic miles of trails in ten state parks, hiking is easily accessible throughout Delaware. The state's relatively mild terrain makes hiking here something that everyone can do, whether you're young or old, a novice or a fitness fanatic. And it doesn't require a lot of expensive equipment. All you really need is a good pair of shoes — sneakers are fine for short hikes.

Once you're hooked on hiking, you'll want to take the Trail Challenge. Hike 15 designated state park trails, measuring almost 40 miles, within twelve months and win the Golden Boot Award! Successful efforts will be rewarded with a distinctive patch and a certificate. To complete the challenge simply take along your Trail Challenge card, locate the trail punch station along each trail, and use the coded punch to mark the appropriate space on your card. If you miss the marker at any park, contact the park office.

Submit your completed Trail Challenge card by December 31, 2008 to get a pedometer and be entered in a drawing for three great prizes!

1st Prize
5 day/4 night stay in a year-round, fully-equipped cottage that sleeps six in a spectacular natural setting in an Ohio State Park, plus $1000 for travel expenses!

2nd Prize
