No matter the weather, we Michiganders get outdoors and have FUN. This was clear during the first-ever Michigan Runner Girl/Michigan DNR Fitness Challenge, which encouraged readers and listeners to go outside, enjoy their favorite get-moving activity, and then post about it on social media with the hashtags #MRGEnergy and #MIStateParks.

It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s photos of places throughout Michigan. We’ve also enjoyed being able to share some cool prizes, thanks to MRG’s partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Today we’re announcing the final two winners of this Fitness Challenge. Each winner receives a $25 Michigan DNR gift certificate. (Time to start planning your summer camping trips!)

The winners are …

@nancyklindsay on Instagram for her snowy skiing pictures, taken at Cheboygan State Park.

AND: @bluemoon0313 on Instagram for showing us a volunteer race moment from the Groundhog Marathon, held earlier this month in Grand Rapids.


Thanks to everyone who participated in the first-ever Michigan Runner Girl/Michigan DNR Fitness Challenge

This challenge was free and open to anyone interested in getting outdoors and experiencing nature in Michigan this winter. BEST PART (aside from the happiness and peacefulness you experienced when getting outside and exploring): Prizes were given away throughout the challenge, which ran January through March 1. Look for more fitness challenges to come…until then, enjoy your time outside in our gorgeous state!
