2023 Event Registration and Random Selection Process

Due to high demand, we are unable to accommodate everyone who wishes to participate in Garmin UNBOUND Gravel.  Therefore, a random selection process will be utilized to determine who will be allowed to participate in the 2023 UNBOUND Gravel events.

The process described herein pertains to the 350-mile, 200-mile, 100-mile, 50-mile, and 25-mile distance options for the 2023 Garmin UNBOUND Gravel.  (Garmin UNBOUND Gravel Juniors will utilize a separate process.)

Individuals have the opportunity to submit their name for participation in the UNBOUND Gravel XL from December 1, 2022 until December 15, 2022, and the UNBOUND Gravel 200, 100, 50, or 25 from January 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm CT until January 20, 2023 @ 11:59 pm CT. Registration for event entry selection is free of charge. However, credit card information is collected at the time you submit your name for consideration. Your credit card is charged only if you are accepted to participate in the event.
