XL Lottery Open: December 1-15
While our 200 sets the stage for the big events of the weekend, the Garmin UNBOUND Gravel XL offers up that solo pursuit you just may be looking for. The UNBOUND Gravel XL stands in a class of its own. This self supported journey through the Flint Hills presents an unparalleled challenge of your body, mind and spirit. If your penchant for pain is matched only by your sense of adventure you’re in the right company.
Over the course of 350 miles, you’ll challenge yourself, you’ll inspire yourself, hell, you’ll downright hate yourself. But you got here for a reason and your potential knows no boundary.
Each and every person that joins us on the start line of the UNBOUND Gravel XL has a reason for being here.

TrackLeader Information: REQUIRED
Due to the remote and self-supported nature of this event, each rider is required to carry a GPS device to give periodic updates on their location. This device is intended to keep race organizers, emergency service personnel, support crews, and spectators aware of riders’ location on course. Potential devices are any produced by SPOT Tracker or the Garmin inReach. These devices must be registered with Trackleaders.com to be included on a live-tracking interactive map that will be available to the public to follow the race.If participants do not wish to purchase a GPS tracker, Trackleaders has SPOT Trace devices available for rent, available within the tracking registration form. Your choices are $20 to apply for tracking using your own device, or $55 to sign up for tracking PLUS device rental. Rental devices will be delivered to Emporia ahead of the event, completely set up and ready to go and available for pickup at registration. Please return any rental devices upon finishing the event, either at the finish festival or the next morning at the awards ceremony.
