Race Information: Only for the crazies. The 5th annual 8-hour Dream Endurance race and marathon is Central Indiana's only endurance event. Close to 400 participants from all over the US participated in the 2018 with over 120 of the finishers logged more than a marathon (26.2) distance. The cheers and excitement at the finish will never be forgotten. The Butler University course makes for a special day. 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. New for 2019, the event starts at 10:00 PM and runners will run through 6:00 PM with a cookout immediately following. Awards will be at 6:30 PM. All solo finishers will receive a belt buckle and team runners will receive a medal. Top three solo men's and women's will compete for a cash purse. 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. CAT NAP 5K for 2019: The Cat Nap 5K will have a unique offering in 2019. Cat Nappers will run their 5K ANYTIME between 10 AM and 5 PM! You choose the start time! Most will choose 10 AM but if you want to wait until later in the day, that is your choice. This allow family and friends the opportunity to support runners while still being timed and getting a shirt.
