Race Information: Only for the crazies. The 3rd Annual 8-hour Dream Endurance race and marathon is Central Indiana's only endurance event. 276 participants from 14 states completed in the 2016 event under extreme temps. The cheers and excitement at the finish will never be forgotten. The new venue at Butler University was spectacular with rave reviews of the course. Tent Village is located outside Hinkle Fieldhouse's front lawn with the course taking runners around the Butler Bowl to the Indianapolis Tow Path, through park trails, by Holcomb Garden and back to Hinkle Fieldhouse. There will again be a long and short course for strategy. The exciting team competition will return as well. For those wanting to accomplish a marathon, we will recommend the number of long course and short course laps to reach the 26.2 mile distance. Participants will see how far they can run during the 8-hour limit. The event starts at 12:00 PM and runners will run through sunset and into the evening. Awards will be at 8:30 PM. Showers will be available throughout the day and after the event. All finishers will receive a finisher's medal and age group awards will be awarded along with a cash purse for the top 3 males and females. Limited to 250 individual runners and 100 teams. Max team size is 8 people and restricted to those 12 and under. Participants will have full access to showers throughout the race at HRC. Individual 10x10 tents are allowed along both sides of the course at the start/finish line. Location of each tent will be assigned by event based on date of registration. Teams are permitted to have tents as well.
