Saturday, June 4th, 2022

200/100/50/25 Lottery: January 5th-January 18th

Deferral registration will be open November 1st through November 30th!

200/100/50/25 Selection Announcement Date: January 26th

Leave the triple-digit distances to the sadists and join us for 25 beautiful miles of famous Flint Hills gravel. The Garmin UNBOUND Gravel 25 will take you on a journey through some of the most stunning gravel roads we have to offer before returning to the cheering fans in Downtown Emporia. 

You don’t have to ride 200 miles to experience the world-class gravel that the Flint Hills have to offer. Challenge yourself to 50 scenic miles along the prairies, grassland and rolling hills outside of Emporia. The Garmin UNBOUND Gravel 50 packs all the beauty of the longer distances into a more condensed route that will leave you feeling tall and proud as you cross the finish line in downtown Emporia.

Super family-friendly, we encourage you to bring the whole crew!
