& Marathon




The 2021 8-Hour Dream Endurance Race is ON for July 17, 2021!



The 8-Hour Dream Endurance Race is a Fixed Duration event: you have 8 hours to run, walk, skip, or crawl as far as you can. You can participate solo or as part of a team (up to 6 members).

Start and finish in front of Butler University's historic Hinkle Fieldhouse. The course along the Towpath and through a section of campus features crushed stone, trail and paved surfaces.

  • Start Time for 2021 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: 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: If you are a returning participant from 2020, please indicate during registration if you want the same tent location for 2021. 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.
