Summer heat is in full effect and the Lunar Kanza is drawing near. That means riding and running at night with cooler temps and the moon and stars (as well as mandatory lights!) guiding your way! The Lunar Kanza celebration is a totally unique experience. Riding or running the Flint Hills at night, under a full moon, is a transformative experience. As always, Dirty Kanza Promotions works hard to bring you an experience that is life enriching. That’s why Lunar Kanza is not only packed with great value, but it offers each participant an opportunity to come together with like minded individuals and partake in something truly unforgettable!
But, more on that value proposition. All registered participants will get some familiar perks with Lunar Kanza. Naturally, you’ll get a sweet t-shirt (pictured left) compliments of Uncommon Threads, from right here in Emporia, KS. On course, participants will be fully supported with GU nutritional products and light aid station fare. At mile 25, you’ll see familiar friendly faces at the Salsa tents. New this year will be the Chamois Butt’r aid station at mile 14 providing additional support or an early turn around point for folks wanting a shorter ride. Plus, what good would a ride or run be without food and drink afterwards? We’ve got that too and it is covered with your entry fee. Surly Mermaid and Saucy Lady will be providing the fine cuisine, while none other than Emporia’s own Mulready’s Pub will be on-site providing the libations. In addition to food and drinks, we’re also throwing a party! Games and live music will be in full effect upon your return from the open range of the Flint Hills.
This year we’ve enlisted the help of our friends in downtown Emporia to really add to that value. All registered participants will receive a commemorative Lunar Kanza button. Folks from the community and non-participants can purchase a button to attend the celebration and enjoy in these perks as well! Not only are these buttons rad keepsakes (we encourage you to show your Lunar Kanza pride and hook this baby to your favorite bag), but it also comes attached with some great perks at local downtown businesses. These businesses have created unique promotional opportunities just for Lunar Kanza. These perks are only valid for folks brandishing the button. So, from August 5th – August 19th, get out to downtown Emporia and take advantage of these additional savings!
