Dirty Kanza 200 is a solo, self-supported, non-stop, 200-mile-long bicycling endurance challenge on the gravel and dirt roads of the Flint Hills region in east-central Kansas. The Dirty Kanza includes about 10,000 feet of climbing. The course is a relentless and undulating 200 miles over blacktop and dirt roads, fist-size and crushed gravel, and sharp, tiny rocks. The race will follow a Finish Line party downtown on Commercial Street. Entertainment, food and drinks!

The tough and beautiful terrain has helped the Dirty Kanza attract a cult following among both professional and amateur riders from across the U.S. and around the world. That's why the 1,500 combined slots in the Dirty Kanza 200 and Dirty Kanza Half Pint (the 100-miler) were snapped up within hours of registration opening. But there are still slots available in the DK Lite 50 and DK Lite 20. You may register here.
