Garmin Dirty Kanza rescheduled from May to September 10-13
Jim Cummins, Dirty Kanza co-founder and Chief Gravel Officer at Life Time, said, “We’ve been working very hard to look at what the current world situation is going to mean for Dirty Kanza 2020 with the health and safety of our participants, local community, emergency responders and everybody who is touched by Dirty Kanza in mind. At the end of the day, we didn’t feel it was appropriate to hold Dirty Kanza on our original date. We’re very excited to announce the rescheduled date and feel that the September 10-13 weekend is going to bring an amazing experience.”
As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, Life Time remains steadfast in its commitment to positively support the Emporia community and participating athletes. Cyclists will be able to choose from three options: they may keep their current entry and participate in the rescheduled event in September, defer their current entry to the 2021 event with a waived deferral fee, or receive a refund for their 2020 entry.
“We know that our athletes have trained hard for Dirty Kanza, so we wanted to maintain the event on our 2020 calendar,” says Kimo Seymour, president of Life Time Events and Media. “In choosing the rescheduled date, we applied careful consideration to avoid interfering with other scheduled races. While delayed from our typical timing, we believe this new date will allow athletes, promoters, sponsors and partners to come together for a fantastic event. Working together will be vital to ensure the health of our cycling community both on and off the bike.”
DirtyKanza are providing all 2020 registered riders with the following 3 options:
Option 1 – Stay the course – keep your current entry and we will move you to the September 2020 event. You don’t need to do anything but keep training.
Option 2 – Defer your current entry to our 2021 event, at no additional cost. You have until May 15th to select this option.
Option 3 – Receive a refund for your 2020 entry. You have until May 15th to select this option.
