Today it was reported on Through Heather’s Looking Glass something really cool called the “Castaway Cay 5K Challenge“. If you are (or will now be) traveling on the Disney Dream on January 12, 2015 after Marathon Weekend, you have a chance to add an extra challenge.
“After competing in the 5K, 10K, half marathon and/or full marathon during the Disney Marathon Weekend (January 7-11), runners can compete Jan. 14 in the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge, a special 5K race on Disney Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line’s private Bahamas island. Every runner who finishes this new runDisney Challenge event will earn two medals – an inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge medal and a Castaway Cay 5K medallion, plus any medals earned for running any Disney Marathon Weekend events (5K, 10K, half marathon or full marathon). ”
This sounds really awesome, as we are now almost Gold Members on Disney Cruise Line. Unfortunately, I am not running at Marathon Weekend this year so I am out, bummer! If you decide to do it, let me know. Maybe in the future I can give this a go!
