DK200, DK100, DK50, DK25


Due to high demand, we are unable to accommodate everyone who wishes to participate in the DK gravel road bicycling challenge.  Therefore, a random selection process will be utilized to determine who will be allowed to participate in the 2020 DK


The process described herein pertains to the 200-mile, 100-mile, 50-mile, and 25-mile distance options for the 2020 DK.  (DKXL and High School will utilize separate processes.)

Individuals will have the opportunity to submit their name for participation in the 2020 DK from January 6, 2020 at 8:00 am CST, until January 19, 2020 at 11:59 pm CST.  Registration for event entry selection will be free of charge. However, credit card information will be collected at the time you submit your name for consideration. Your credit card will be charged only if you are accepted to participate in the event.

Selection and Payment of Entry Fees:

Winning entries will be selected on or about January 27, 2020, subject to event eligibility requirements.  The individuals whose names are selected will be awarded entry in the 2020 DK. These selected event participants will be notified by email, per the contact information they provide.  Each participant’s credit card will be charged the event registration fee, a small processing fee, state sales tax, as well as any additional fees for add-on items chosen by the participant. If your card is declined for any reason, your spot will be forfeited. Those applicants who are not selected for participation will also be notified. 

Group Lottery Option:

A group lottery option is recommended for family, friends, and other small groups (up to four individuals) who ONLY want to participate if they can do so together.  The first athlete registering will be required to create a Group Name. All subsequent group members must submit their name for selection consideration using the same Group Name matching exactly.  For example… If your Group Name is “RaceTheSunRiders”, the Group Name “Race The Sun Riders” will not match you with other members of your group. The Group Name will be the name entered into the selection process.  If the Group Name is selected, each member of the group will be accepted to participate, and charged the appropriate fees. Individual group members are not required to participate in the same event distance.

Individual Participant Registration Fees:

DK 200-mile distance  – $240

DK 100-mile distance  – $130

DK 50-mile distance  – $50

DK 25-mile distance  – $35
