Dirty Kanza Virtual Camp

The Dirty Kanza is an endurance gravel race (offering 25-350 mile distances) that takes place in and around the small town of Emporia, KS. It is arguably the premier gravel race in the country. Leading up to the race the town hosts a training camp to ready the riders for the challenge. Recently, the Dirty Kanza camps had to be canceled. However, even in the face of the health crisis, the Dirty Kanza simply doesn’t give up – ever.

The team is offering a Dirty Kanza VIRTUAL camp experience this weekend

April  2-5, 2020.

The Dirty Kanza virtual camp includes planned programming for campers, online challenge rides, cameo appearances from the pros, footage from Emporia, and surprisingly inventive live streams, all narrated and led by the DK events team.

The DK team is excited to offer a gathering place to keep the motivation, resiliency, and fire burning, which is what endurance athletes crave. They also want to do what they can to give back to the local Emporia community who are being impacted immensely by the virus and the cancellation of the camps.

Registration will be live on Thursday, April 2nd, beginning at 10am CT.

The camp is open to every gravel cyclist, or person interested in cycling anywhere on this planet, at a minimal cost of $10. A portion of all entry fees will directly impact the local Emporia businesses, who need our support more than ever right now! All campers will also get $10 off Dirty Kansas merchandise.

Emporia is an integral part of Dirty Kanza. With a population of 26,000, the COVID-19 pandemic is proving stressful for the small businesses on our Commercial Street – home of the Dirty Kanza start and finish line. A portion of camp fees will be donated back to the Lyon County Disaster Relief Fund, earmarked for these businesses.

Check out the Virtual Camp page for the full schedule, and be sure to check back on Thursday for the link to the camp.

They hope to give all of you at home a positive and uplifting few days. Raising each other up is so important right now, and their hope is this does just that. So block your calendars, get your chamois butt’r ready, and saddle up for 4 awesome days of Training Camp!

Thanks to the DK team for continuing to offer a way for endurance athletes to connect and feel the love in these difficult times.
