update 12/30/12

Just off the Dream and ran the 5K. We met at Evolution at 8:15 and received bibs. The Navigator very clearly stated that this run was for 12 and up- but they didn't question my 11 year old and when someone young walked in the CM would say "Tell me you are 12." There were definitely some 7,8,9's running with their parents. Evolution was pretty full by the time we left- they said it was an unusually big group.
We disembarked at 8:30 (as did all the other passengers- we saw family members as we were gathering outside the ship). By the time we were all off the ship and walked together to the start- the race started at 8:58.
Two CMs were running the event. The last member of my party finished at 40 minutes- but they were encouraging people who just wanted to walk it - to do so, so they probably waited for all to finish. We receive certificates when we finished- no medals. There were plenty of shirts to purchase at the finish- no rush/didn't run out.
There were plenty of water stops. We were on a double dip- they did run it both days.

That really annoys me. I just don't understand why people can't follow the rules and teach their children to follow the rules.

Does anyone know if the nursery is open at this time? We are taking our 2-year old and I'm wondering if this will be an option. I struggled through the 5k last fall, but I've been training (and should have a 10k under my belt by then) so I'd love to have a better run this year if not, DH would probably watch DD, but we'd love to run together if that's an option.

Did you leave ship you can drop them off with childcare on the island. However the group will not wait for you so you have to be quick.

When I ran the 5K on December 11th, the CM said the Castaway Cay 5K was becoming an official Run Disney event. She further mentioned that a new medal was being created to match Run Disney's standards. Expect a much better medal in the future.

Also in regards to the under 12... Only 12 and older can get a number and officially run the event. Younger child can go with a parent but may not officially run or receive a number. My 7 year old insisted running with me this was his 4th 5k. If we were running in July I wouldn't let him run, because of the heat. FYI...There are ample water stations almost every 1000 feet.

Excited to see this, Heather! I've followed your blog for about a year now. Just joined DIS in preparation of our 3/24/13 Dream cruise. Fun to see you over here and so excited to find out about this 5K!

On our December trip, there was a couple with a jogging stroller. They stayed in the back of the group. The run felt like a "fun run" there was every type of runner. Serious ones in the front, casual in the back. There is recognition for doing the run, but since its not a prized event.... You won't ever feel like you are going to be mowed down.

The only problem with the stroller is having to bring it along. If your child is able to go into the Lab or club. They walked past the Cataway Cay outdoor club area so you can check your children in, while you run.

DH and I ran the CC 5k on January 15 during our DREAM cruise. No medal and no running bib. I was disappointed but not surprised. I keep reading that it's very hit or miss with all of the race details and such
They did, however, hand out "race certificates" at the finish line...

Plastic "Mickey-shaped" medals with WINNER printed on the ribbon and bibs for all those that participated in the CC5K on last Friday's Fantasy cruise (1/18/13).
