That would be great!
No cost. The event takes place in the morning at Castaway Cay around 9am.
Check your Navigator the night before for information on where and when to meet up.
Here is the link where you can find more information on this.

So I will properly probably WALK it and get that freaking cool Mickey medal.
That's if I can finish before the CM left.
Anyone else plan to participate the CC 5K?
A 5K is approximately 3.1 miles.

I've done three with DCL. Its a great way to see the island. Don't worry about needing to run the whole thing. If you jog or even walk it, getting out and doing a bit of exercise is good for you and it's a great way to see the island!

I found it but couldn't log out DH's facebook, so I requested using his facebook.
Now I got to figure it out how to chat.

I couldn't take the risk. So it's official! I transfered a couple days ago.

Enjoy reading all your posts, this will be my sixth Disney cruise :0)

I am rather addicted to RunDisney. Most trips to WDW or DLR the past three years have been timed around a race. That being said, I am slow, short and 'stocky'. Each and every time I do the Castaway 5K, I come in dead last.

Having some motivation and an enjoyable environment are wonderful to getting up and moving. I went and took pictures for a DIS boards blog in 2010 during marathon weekend in January. Just being there, witnessing it gave me the inspiration to sign up for my first Disney race. The great thing about the Castaway Cay 5K is that it is free, you're running in a great DCL exclusive location and you get a cute medallion for finishing.

Long ramble cut down: "I'm in for it!"
