Is the entire route on pavement? I am wondering as I use a wheelchair and would love to participate.

It was last October when we did it: path to air strip, air strip, and bike loop. There were puddles in some spots along the bike loop.

As a surprise for my family, I am secretly training for the 5K next month when we cruise on the Dream.

For all you runners out there - I have been training/running inside at 78 degrees - is 78 outside going to feel hotter?

Yes. Don't be disipointed if you cant run as fast outside as you can inside.

Thanks! I expected as much.

My goal is only to finish, not to win or even run fast. I have never run before in my life and am still not completely recovered from a herniated disc almost two years ago. I will be thrilled just to cross the finish line, even if it's walking.

Starting is better than not starting. Finishing(walk or run finish) is the best!! I finished my first 5k back in May. Plan on doing this 5k as I plan on doing the Princess 1/2 in Feb. I live in Florida and I'll be honest...it's been pretty slow training over the summer. It is tough running in this heat. We've had a bit drier air lately so that helps. The humidity is what gets you. You can't hydrate enough. Just hydrate, and take frequent short walk breaks and you will do great!!

78 inside is nothing like anything you will feel in the Bahamas outside in mid-morning. I live in FL and was totally shocked by the heat, sun, and especially lack of shade on the CC 5k course.. In February, a mild month.

Please, don't let that discourage you. Just be prepared for your bodies reaction! You CAN
Finish.. be conscience of dehydration, remember to take it slower for the increased heat, and have FUN! All that matters is crossing the finish line. You don't want to ruin your CC day by burning out in a run.

Good luck!! You Can Finish!

Finished dead last beats did not finish, which is so much better than did not race.

My goal for the castaway (my first 5K) was anything under 45 min.

Good luck
