Ran CC5K Feb 19th with a camera on my head but need a few more posts before I can post the link.

It was a pretty boring course but a nice start to the day

I can't search for this answer, so sorry if this has been asked and answered before.
I know the route for the 5k has been described many times, but are there any significant hills on the course or is it fairly flat?
I have a week left before we leave and I need to know if I need to increase my outside hill work

No need for hill work, it's very flat, no problems there. Try to enjoy it, it will be over before you know it.

5 kilometers is 3.1 miles, not that a tenth of a mile matters that much

Childcare during CC 5K?

Hello, this will be our first Disney cruise and hubby and I would love to do the Castaway Cay 5K! I've read a bunch of threads about it and it sounds like we could drop off our kids at Shuttles Cove on the way off the boat. Is that right? Has anyone done this? TIA!

As a treadmill runner (who has been using .5 incline) I would say it's not *very* flat, but it is basically flat. As you go into the loop (assuming you're going the way they tell you to go, and not opposite) it goes up a bit, then it goes down. I'm sure a street runner wouldn't notice at all, but I did. And side to side the course isn't 100% flat, either. Stay away from the edges of the road if you have tricky ankles!

When you factor in the hotel stay and a 3 or 4 day WDW pass,it comes to some big bucks to run a 5k.
If someone has done one of these before and thinks it's a once in a lifetime experience, I may become more serious about it.
I do think it would be an amazing experience,but, it would be expensive,so I just don't know.
What's making this a decision that needs to be done soon is------ the WDW prices will be going up soon,so getting tickets now for future use,will save some money.........

Just wanted to share....I just did the Princess Half Marathon on Sunday-got talked into doing this. Understand that I do not run or jog. Haven't really walked the last few months. Basically I went in cold with no training! I did finish it in 3:38:30 a little under the pace of 3:30 they want u to finish in-needed a restroom break! I walked the whole thing and that bling in the end was worth it. I felt a big sense of accomplishment. Never even walked 13.1 miles before. The most 2 5K's on Castaway Aug 2013(way too hot and humid and I live in Florida) and Nov 2013. I came in dead last for both of those!
So, now I'm feeling inspired and signing up for th Tower of Terror 10 miler this year. Will try do some training so I can enjoy everything. I know I live in Florida and don't have to worry about airfare, but I did spend a pretty penny on hotel, expo items, food, etc, but in the end worth it for the first time.

Hey-I am curious about the 1/2 marathon weekend. We are thinking about doing the family 5k next year that is in the early morning same day this cruise leaves, that way my daughter can participate. But how hard core are they about getting you off the course if they think your pace isn't fast enough? My mom has a bad knee, but can still walk at fairly good pace, and wants to do this with us. I am going in search of other RunDisney threads right after I send this. TIA!
