Welcome to the 8-Hour Dream Endurance Race, the ultimate test of your strength and determination! Get ready to push yourself to the limits in this unforgettable event held on the beautiful campus of Butler University in Central Indiana. Picture this: spending a day on campus, surrounded by a buzzing atmosphere that feels like a running tailgate. Whether you're a runner, walker, or just love to stroll, you have eight hours to go as far as you can. And trust us, you won't want to miss out on this adventure. This race has gained immense popularity, with SOLD OUT editions for three consecutive years. Our secret? The high percentage of returning runners. Once you experience the Dream, it's hard to resist coming back for more. Now, let's talk about the courses. You have two options: the long course (5K) or the short course (1.91 miles). Choose based on your strategy, desire for shade, or the specific distance you're aiming for. No matter which one you pick, get ready to conquer the now famous Bulldog's Revenge hill. The 8-Hour Dream offers three ways to participate: the SOLO category for individual warriors, the TEAM category for those who prefer camaraderie, and the Cat Nap 5K, a special opportunity for family and friends to run alongside the SOLO runners. But wait, we have something exciting for you in 2024! Introducing the FC Cup Team Competition. This new division is designed for fitness clubs like OrangeTheory, F45, Eat the Frog, YMCA, CrossFit, and more. Gather your teammates and hold on tight because this co-ed division requires both male and female participants. Fitness clubs can enter as many teams as they want, so bring your A-game and show us what you're made of! Now, let's talk about what sets the 8-Hour Dream apart from other races. First, our start time is at 10 AM, giving you the perfect energy boost to kickstart your day. The race takes place outside Hinkle Fieldhouse, adding a touch of history and charm to the event. And here's the cherry on top - we have an incredible post-race party waiting for you. Picture a lively beer garden, a rocking live band, and mouthwatering complimentary food. It's the ultimate celebration to toast to your achievements! So, are you ready to take on the 8-Hour Dream Endurance Race?
