    If the cruise stops there, then yes. On double dips with 2 stops, it's offered twice.

    Not to embarrass anyone but what is the worst time you have gotten on this? I ask because I hate to run but this AMD weight loss has me completing a 5k walk/jog a few time a week. I am completing in about 47 minutes now, shaving a few seconds each time. I just wanna get an idea on how this is. I don't expect to come in the beginning that's for sure!

    Has anyone done both the 5K and the Wild Teen Adventure on CC?

    Last year by the time we left the ship from Vibe it was almost 9:30. The 5K was scheduled from 8:30-9:30, I figure I have time to do both.

    I planned to drop off my swimming shorts and stuff to my parents and picking it up from the beach when the run was over :beach:

    :scratchin What do you think?

    I saw on a Navigator from Dec. that the meet time for the 5K was 9:00, so not sure that would work. What time does the Wild Teen adventure start? My DS 13 is planning to run the CC5K next week. I'll come back and let you know what time it is over.

    We sailed on the Fantasy in November. My seven year old daughter ran with me! She got a medal and a bib! No one blinked at her or asked her age. She was thrilled!

    I'm hoping that DS10 will get to run with DH. DS is in a program called Let Me Run (similar to Girls on the Run but for boys) so he already has a couple of 5Ks under his belt. This would be such a great experience for him.

    Never forget:
    Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.

    I dont remember the exact time but my wife and kid did it in 36 minutes so there were still plenty of people not off the ship yet.

    Just did my first 5K,two weeks ago, with two new feet and my first pair of Nike crosstrainers in YEARS!! Due to Lyme Arthritis,had to have the bones in my feet broken and straightened and after a gazillion years of pain and two years of recovery,I finished the 5k in 40 minutes,walking quickly thru the whole thing. There was a man with a toddler on his shoulders near me most of the time and I was determined to finish in front of him. The 4 times DH & I have been to CC,I could only dream about being able to simply walk that route. Now,on our 3/9 cruise, I'm going for it-a tad anxious, but I'll finally be a participant instead of a spectator. Sometimes it isn't just a 5k...........:hippie:

    I just did my first 5k yesterday on CC. Finished dead last at 63 minutes. I'm glad I did it though. I've had two back surgeries and almost gave up. We received bibs and a Mickey shaped medal that said WINNER on it. The cast member on the course said that they would deliver certificates to our rooms, but we got nothing. I called guest services about it that night and they said they would take care of it but all they left at the room was more medals and a nice journal. I would have liked the certificate but oh well!
