Castaway Cay 5k Medal

I know many of the 5k threads have been merged. I am looking to see if the Castaway Cay 5k hands out medals to the runners for the Dream. I know I saw a thread that said no, but I also found a blog as recently as last may that showed a mickey head medal. My friend and I just started the couch to 5k program and will be making the Castaway our first official run. I would love for her ( and ok me too) to get a medal at the end, even if I have to make them ( which I haven't figured out yet- but I will if I have too). Has anyone done the run recently?

In November they were just handing out certificates that said you completed the 5K. I had heard they were out of the medals. Things may have changed since then. I didn't run it on the DVC member cruise earlier this month, but saw some people with the certificates.

I really do think it depends on who the cm is and what they want to hand out-every cruise seems to be different-in April 2012 we got the certificates and the plastic medals


The cm doing the race was Shane

I run 5ks fairly often.... if this is your first, let the person heading up the group know (CM) so that they don't mistakenly leave if you take a bit longer. My finish times are higher in the Bahamas due to the weather's effect on my body. You won't have your best time there, but that's not really what it's all about.... it's supposed to be fun. I would just hate for you to finish up and no-one be there with anything for you.

I'm sure the CMs always intend to stay 'til the last person, but they mentioned that people sometimes give up, head over to the observation tower on the route, and the CM's just figure no one else intends to finish. It's hot for them to wait out there, even in winter months.

Good luck!

It seems it is hit or miss and that was discussed in other thread.

It must be hit and miss like everyone else is saying.

Just got of the dream this past Saturday, and for our CC day, they were handing out medals for those who participated.

OP, do you have an award shop in your town or nearby? If so, they can make simple medals for you.


I just want the bib. For some reason those mean more to me than the medals do!
