Dream Race is the first Dream Event in the Wii and Nintendo 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 Nintendo DS version takes place at Blue Sky Highway.
There are three obstacles that slow players down on the course.
Blaze the Cat's sixth and her final mission in the Wii version is Dream Race. To win this mission, she must finish the race first without colliding into others. If she collides with another, she will not win the mission.
Sonic the Hedgehog's third mission is Dream Race. To win it, he must come in second place.
Vector the Crocodile's sixth and final mission is the same as Sonic the Hedgehog's third event. To win it, Vector must come in second place.
