The start time depends on what time your cruise will get you to CC. We have been on Fantasy western and Dream Bahamas. The Bahamas cruises arrive at CC much earlier the the western. The 5k on our western didn't actually start til close to 10. The Bahamas one will start you at 9ish. Makes a big difference in that heat..lol.

The navigator will explain the details. Basically, you show up at a certain time(depending on the arrival at CC time) and meet in the Tube. Sign up when you get there. That's it

Scuttles Cove at CC is run by the same counselors. Yes, the navigators say that BUT.... If you are running the 5K, they will allow you to check your kids in early. We double checked the day before at Oceaneers. The counselors we talked to said they will definitly take them early. Another friend we made on the cruise asked a different counselor who kind of gave her the run around and didn't really know the answer. If this happens to you, don't except that answer and find a supervisor to ensure you can check them in early.

Is there a minimum age requirement to run? I think my 11 year old would love to run this one with me!

When I did this race in August, the Navigator listed the minimum age as 12. We showed up in the lounge that was our meeting place. We signed in with the member of the cruise staff that was in charge. There were some kids, not sure if there were any under twelve, but I didn't see the cruise staff member ask any ages of the kids.

Minimum age to participate is 12. Some CMs would allow the kids to participate however they cannot be signed up, nor they would receive a certificate nor bib. This is due to insurance issues (or so they say). Ie, they look the other way...

Other CMs won't allow anyone under 12 period and you'll have to check the kids in the labs.

The run is totally unshaded. If it's hot/humid, it will be an issue for young ones.

We ran the 5k last week on the 3 day Dream. Although the cm didn't allow those under 12 to sign up, if they happened to be running along side their parent and happened to pick up a bib from the table the cm said they wouldn't stop them. There were a few close to 12 who ran and some closer to 7 or 8. They were all with a parent on the course and I saw several with Mickey medals after they finished. They looked like they had a lot of fun.

It would be nice to know if they would def. look the other way re kids or not. Our almost 10 year olds have been training in secret with me for weeks now as a surprise to join dh/dad on this run. Just read this thread and feeling especially bummed.

Tell me about the 5k on CC

This is our first cruise and I have seen in other posts that there is a 5k on CC. I don't run, but my 10 year old DD does. She just completed her first 5k in 32m 36s (so proud of her). I told her about the 5k on CC and she wants to participate.
Would she be able to run on her own? I'm trying to talk DH into running with her, but I'm not sure he could keep up .......LOL

Because of her age she can't officially run (with a number) but she can run it unofficially. But I do believe she has to run with an adult too.

Bummer that she can't run officially. I guess that means they don't time her either :-(

They don't time anyone. There is a time clock, and you just note your own time when you finish.

My kids did it.

June 2011. It is very informal. People show up & they give minimal instructions. I walked it as did many others.

What fun! My Dis Meet crew made up special 5K shirts. Now they have official shirts that you can buy.

stroller?

Someone mentioned putting their kid in a stroller, but then I never saw anything else about that. Is it possible to do the race with a kid in a stroller? Thanks!
