To dream that you are in a race, foretells that others will aspire to the things you are working to possess, but if you win in the race, you will overcome your competitors.
Dreaming that you are in a race signifies that others are envious of your achievements and want what you have. If you win the race, your dream means that you will overtake your competitors.
This dream can reveal your competitive nature and how you tend to measure yourself against others.
Are you competing or running from or to something?
In order to have a good understanding of this dream you should consider those factors.
If you are simply running, it may be an indication that you need to slow down in your everyday life. If you are competing, you need to consider your competitive drive and realistically look at the current challenges.
If you are running in a race and win, your unconscious may be expressing confidence that you may or may not feel in the wakened state. Running in your dreams may also symbolize the energy levels, the strength, or the force that you have to get through life.
Running a foot race in your dreams show that you have an enemy who is a threat to your possessions and is envious of your acquisitions or achievements.
To win the race means you will quickly overcome your adversary.
