Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay 5K
On our recent family vacation aboard the Disney Fantasy, we got the opportunity to run the runDisney Castaway Cay 5K. Being a runDisney bling fanatic, this was the excursion I was most looking forward to experiencing. One of my first stops once I got aboard the Fantasy was to stop by Senses Spa and the Shore Excursion desk to find how I could register for this race.
Good news – no preregistration is required. Simply wait until the night prior to your stop at Castaway Cay and look for the race information in your Navigator. The meeting place & time will be listed. There is no additional fee to participate. You will receive a race bib, safety pins and when you complete the race – a Castaway Cay 5K “medal.”
Please note that you must be 12-years old or older to participate. We were unaware of this rule and had hyped the race up with the kids (10, 9, and 7) so our family was a little surprised and disappointed, but hey – we were still at Castaway Cay with a beach and water slides so all was well once again!
The Castaway Cay 5K is a fun run and is not officially timed, but a race clock will run. The course runs along the airstrip and loops the bike trial. Our race start was around 10am so the sun was up and the temperature was rising fast. Water is provided on the course and the 5K course is detailed on the above video.
We were all really looking forward to this race and earning our runDisney Disney Cruise Line bling. If you have the opportunity to run this race during your stop at Castaway Cay I highly recommend it!
