Join us for the RMAG Geohike Challenge 2020!


The RMAG Geohike Challenge 2020 is designed for everyone and anyone to get outdoors and enjoy life in beautiful Colorado or wherever you live! This is a GEOLOGIC SCAVENGER HUNT and a PHOTO CONTEST with many categories to become a winner. 


Whether you live in Colorado, Houston, the Appalachians or another part of the country, this RMAG special event is designed to get us outside to have fun, relax and create a sense of connection with others and share your experience virtually through LinkedIn while also building your professional network.

We are operating this event through the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists (RMAG) LinkedIn Event Page. It's also a great way to build your network with other geoscience professionals. (FYI, you need to click on the teal ATTEND EVENT button of the event to be able to share your finds on the page.) If you prefer not to use LinkedIn you can email your finds to staff@rmag.org

Please keep track and alert us when you have found them all (one photo per numbered Scavenger Hunt category ) so we can audit your finds and crown you the winner. There is a first places winner but awesome prizes will be awarded throughout the contest for correctly completing the scavnger hunt. Please include a short description and location for audit purposes. 

  2. PHOTO CONTEST - smaller prizes are awarded for posting photos in the PHOTO CONTEST categories below under “Photo Contest” to the RMAG LinkedIn Event Page with the #rmaggeohikechallenge2020 (or email your photos of all items to staff@rmag.org ). Individual prizes for each item - 7 winners possible. When entering, be sure to note the category you are submitting each photo under, and include any other information that will help us pick a winner (screenshot of GPS track for Longest Hike, for example). Your Photo Contest entries must include rocks in the photos and will be judged on content, geology, and artistic composition.

DOWNLOAD CONTEST ITEMS AND DETAILS HERE - and bring this list with you!

Just a few examples of prizes are:  Gift cards for REI, Trader Joe's, & Target just to name a few. But the ultimate prize is getting outdoors, having fun and being virtually connected with your friends and colleagues in a fun event that we will post on social media.

If you don't find any items, still post your photos of yourself outdoors and/or your family, dogs, and Covid safe friends as you take on the Challenge. If you end up giving up and having drinks in the back yard we want to see that too but at least wear your shirt!

You must be registered for the event to win a prize. If you are experiencing financial difficulty and would still like to play, please reach out to staff@rmag.org.

Good luck and enjoy the journey!
