Disney Castaway Cay Challenge

RunDisney has made a new announcement today! If you run any (or all) of the races during the 2015 WDW Marathon weekend that take place January 7-11, then choose to set sail on the participating Disney Cruise and run the Castaway Cay 5K, you get a special medal commemorating the inaugural race challenge.

The participating cruise is a 4-night Bahamian adventure from Port Canaveral, which takes place January 12-16, the day after the marathon weekend events! The Disney Castaway Cay 5K is the  morning of January 14, 2015. Not only do you get to run on Disney own private island, but according to the announcement, you will get a special VIP treatment on board the ship. These include “exciting activities, special merchandise offerings, and featured menu items.”

You can book your cruise on the Disney Dream today by going to Disneycruise.com, then register for the Castaway Cay Challenge on Active.com on May 23 at Noon EST.

Make sure to use the promotional code RUN at the time of booking your Cruise. Don’t forget to enter your Cruise reservation number when you register for the race.

  1. Wow, perfect timing that I read this because my sister just texted me and asked if I wanted to do a cruise after the marathon weekend. I'm pretty sure she has no idea this is going on! It's a possibility though. Are you doing it?

    1. Oh nice timing indeed!! Honestly we probably won't next year. It would require a lot of extra money and vacation days that we were planning to use in other ways!

  3. Not in the cards for us this year since we are skipping marathon weekend. However, it looks like fun if you already planned on taking the cruise!

    1. Absolutely! Even though I am doing the Dopey Challenge, I doubt I'll be doing this race. Maybe another year!

  4. Disney is always coming up with ways to draw people back, don't they?

    1. Yes!! I am still surprised they haven't announced a Star Wars themed race. That has been a rumor for a long time!

  6. I've been thinking about doing wine and dine in 2015 and then a cruise right after. The Castaway Cay 5K is definitely fun and I'm intrigued to hear about the extra perks you might get on board the ship. I'd certainly wear my medals the whole time!
