Dream Race is the first Dream Event in the Wii and DS versions of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Like the other Dream Events, it is fictional and is not in the real Olympic Games. It is not based off any particular event, but does borrow elements from the Athletics events as well as the Mario Kart series. In the Wii version, Dream Race takes place on a track known as the Sandhill Track Course, while the DS version takes place at Blue Sky Highway.
There are three obstacles that slow players down on the course.
