Is the childcare on CC open before the race? I'd love to run this 5K on our cruise, but as a single parent I need someone to watch my kids. They'd LOVE one of those medals, but I'm not sure I can get them to run a 5K. If they aren't able to train for it, is there childcare available?

Aren't these the same medals you get for the trivia contest?

Just ran it on the Fantasy this week they did have medals no certificates. The guy told my husband who was waiting for me that most of the other ships ran out of them and they can't keep them in stock because so many people are running now, all the medals are on the Fantasy because its new and people expect them to have them. But they are ordering more and trying to restock the other ships.

I noticed at the trivia thing now you get the water bottle they use to give out for running

My husband and I ran the 5k on 12/7/12. We had to check in at 0930 at the Tube. As a group we walked to the starting point. It was so hot for my husband and I, we live in Upstate NY so we aren't used to the humidity. But, it was a good run. There was a water checkpoint along the way. We got a metal after we crossed the finish line and checked back with one of the organizers. T-shirts were available for sale at the store right near the start/finish.
My only complaint would be, I wish we started the process earlier. It would have been nice if we got off the ship at 945, and started the run around 10. But, I would do it again

Ooh, when are you going? The "this is new" link in my sig is my pre-cruise-journal-of-sorts, FYI.

If my son can separate himself from our cousins at that point, I'm hoping they'll let him run with me (and maybe DH if his achilles issue calms down). But I'm thinking he'll be with his cousins and will refuse to leave them.

We are going in August! Right now we are booked on a 7 night Eastern on the Fantasy, though I might downgrade to a 4 night Dream if I get scared of the cost and the possible seasickness.

Thanks for the head's up on the new pre-trippie! Heading over there now!!!!

Still wondering about child care, though. If the race starts at 10, and the kids are in childcare on the ship, it would be a big waste of time to drop them in childcare, go run, go get them, then go back to CC. But if childcare is open on CC, that makes it so much easier.

Does anyone know whether childcare is available on CC during the 5K?

I will be there too. I also haven't had much time to train and I am definitely not in shape. I will probably walk a good bit of it. I am using it to help me plan for the Expedition Everest Challenge next May.

Are kids allowed to run? I'm seeing people post about their kids joining them. I thought they couldn't....please tell me I'm wrong! My 6.5 year old is a runner and has run several 5ks. He's heartbroken that he cannot join mom on the cc5k.

From there we walked to the starting line. We were shown the route on the map and we were on our way!



I don't have pics of the race for obvious reasons. But here is the medal they gave me and the shirt I bought,





If you guys have any questions feel free to ask.
Thanks for posting this. Not sure if I can run 5K but I'm planning to walk my first 5K on next cruise.

That stinks. How about Magic? I have my eyes on that medal.

The Magic does. Actually the Magic gives it out for trivia winners.

You do have to be over 12, but I saw a couple of kids who had to be like 7 or 8 running with their parents. They just couldn't sign up to run was what their mother told me.
