200 miles. 200 miles of Flint Hills gravel roads to be precise. Dirty Kanza is quite the journey to say the least and to finish is without a doubt a huge accomplishment. It is the climax of months, sometimes years of planning, hard work and sacrifice (lot’s of sacrifice!). That is why nothing can replace, or duplicate, the emotions you will feel as you come down Commercial Street in Emporia, KS. All of the joy, all of the sadness and anger and frustration and laughter pouring out of you all at once. Nothing tangible could ever live up to that. But, it can serve as a reminder. It can help you remember just what it was that made you set out on the journey in the first place.
