BTW, nancy drew, my DH doesn't care about the medal and says that you can have his. If you'd like it pm me your address I'd be happy to send it to you!

Wow, really? That is so nice! I'm going to try to contact someone on the cruise line and see if they can send me one, but if not then I will PM you. Thank you, and tell your husband thank you too!

FWIW we ran this past Friday and received the medal. Guessing the certificate was a last minute replacement for a late shipment and would expect a medal.

They also said the run sat a record with 260 participants.

Can anyone tell us what time they started the clock? I see on this Navigator that they met at 8:15 and left the ship at 8:30.

Does anyone recall how soon after that the race started? Do they have you queue up until 9 am for example?


Also for all the people who had 200+, what was that like?? Did the crowd slow you down?

We have an excursion we have to be back at, at 9:30. But we are still eyeing this. If the race started 8:45 or even a little later, we think it could still be done. Or at least...very motivating to keep a good clip!

Back in October, we were barely off the ship at 9:30. Serious complaining (and I'm not saying she's wrong!) by one woman who took the Navigator seriously and booked nursery time that morning for her baby, and it was going to be for nothing because she couldn't run.

Just off the Dream and ran the 5K on Tuesday! It was my first 5K in over 8 years. I was so excited to use this as motivation to get back into training and was really pleased with a 31 minute time. As everyone says it's like running on the sun there - so be prepared! I drank lots of water and gatorade the day before to make sure I was hydrated. Our navigator had us meet at 8:15 and we started the 5K right around 9. They did have medals, which made me really happy after reading some recent posts! (It's all about the plastic bling!) Now I'm using the fun I had to hopefully run the Princess Half Marathon in February!

Rissyrynn, what a great experience for you! Big congrats! And really glad to hear they started right around 9. Maybe if the people signed up are more prompt (and they would rather get started before it gets even hotter) then they can head out sooner!

A 31 minute time for someone who's been out of the game!!! I just would love to even get to a 31 minute time! You're very inspiring. I need to go train instead of reading vacation threads.

I have to say that our 5K a couple weeks ago started later, closer to 9:30, maybe 9:40, and not because of people arriving late. We waited a while in the Tube after everyone (260+, a record number for the 5k) had checked in, then again lined up in the hallway outside the tube and down the stairs to disembark.

Just did the 5K Thursday at CC. I would say there were about 65 runners (we were on the Wonder rather than one of the bigger ships). Although we met at 8 and were scheduled to start the race at 8:30, we weren't able to disembark until 8:30 and thus didn't start the race until around 9 (after walking to the start). We did get bibs and medals.
