Does anyone know if you get a medal or anything for finishing the 5k? Is there a limit on how many runners can enter? What time does it begin?

Yes, you get a medal for finishing the 5K. To my knowledge there is no limit to the number of runners. You just have to pay attention to the navigator for the time and place to show up for sign up, which is the morning of your arrival at Castaway Cay. There are t-shirts available for purchase at the shop right at the start / finish line, but from what I have heard, there are limited supplies. My DH and I both got one, but we made sure we got them right away just to be sure. Have fun!

According to other posters the medal is hit or miss and they don't always have shirts availalbe. I am going to merge this thread with the existing one for more answers for you.

Just got off the Disney Dream. The 5K group of runners ( there were about 60 of us) met at 0815 at Evolution. We picked up our bib numbers there. At 0830 we walked to the Start/Finish line on Castaway Cay for a 0900 start. The course is well marked and 2 crew members were handing out water after the loop. At the end, medals were handed out. We didn't get our T-shirts until after we went back to the ship for breakfast, but there was a rack with about 10 shirts on it.

I just got off the Fantasy and ran the 5K. It was awesome! There were plenty of "winner" medals for everyone and the staff was great. 65 or so people ran it. There was no shortage of 5K t-shirts. I really enjoyed it.

Are the shirts for sale? Is there a fee for the 5k?

There is no fee for the 5K, but there is a charge for the shirts, it seemed to be the same as other t-shirts. It was well worth it.

We ran this last Sunday, while on a 4-nt. Wonder sailing... excellent weather for it! It was well-organized, meeting in Diversions at 8:30AM, and walking out to the start as a group. I noticed that several people who showed up for a race bib didn't bring their ID, and the CMs were very clear that you needed an ID, along with your Key Card, to receive one. The plastic winners 'metals' were handed to us as we crossed the finish - definitely fun! I didn't see anyone handing out water, but there is a water fountain at the nearby restrooms. There were white 5K t-shirts still available for purchase at the shop next to the bike rentals. The 5K logo on the shirt was the logo on the bib. I think they were around $20 each.
