  • Start Time for 2020 is 10:00 AM! After a long day on campus, our awards presentation/post party has grown over the years. A 6:00 PM finish time will allow it to continue longer as the sun sets on The Dream!

  • Post-party: COOKOUT CANCELLED for 2020!- (Cookout will return in 2021) With the event finishing earlier, the CRRG event team will fire up the grills for a free post-party cookout from 6:00 - 8:30 PM. This will give everyone time to shower, pack, and toast their accomplishments.

  • Reclaim Your Tent Location: (Limited Number of Tents in 2021 Due to COVID-19 Changes) If you are a returning participant from 2019, please indicate during registration if you want the same tent location for 2020. If yes, you will be automatically confirmed. This will assist in making set-up that much quicker on race day.



Hinkle Fieldhouse has reigned as one of the nation's great sports arenas for more than eight decades. The classic facility was constructed in 1928 and it has stood up to the test of time, maintaining the splendor, character, and atmosphere that made it one of the nation's most famous basketball arenas for nearly a century.
