Not sure how many of you are aware that there is a Castaway Cay 5k event held on CC port days. The event is held first thing upon docking at CC What I know so far of the event is that the 5k is listed as a family event on the navigators (I am looking into age requirements now). I know that only those who are registered are allowed on the Island during the run and that it starts about 8:00 am and that a castmember oversees the entire thing. I also know you have to pre-register so that the ship can notify CC cast members that it is happening and how many will take part so they can prepare the Island. Anyone who starts and finishes the run gets a certificate of completion signed by the Captain and Mickey. As I said, I dont know the age restrictions for children yet nor do I know about the walk-run aspect but I will find that out when my group does it in October. My Dis Meet-up group for our Nov 7 day is planning on running and I will have a hands on description then. I will also find out if there is a maximum number allowed to run. There have been very positive posts about this on the cruise forum and on the passporter site Here is my idea - Since there is no Muddy Buddy or Marathon the weekend before or after PCC 2.0 how about we make the 5k a fundraiser for GKTW and see how much money we can raise on the cruise. If we can get 50 cruisers to run and each one raises say $150 that is $7500 for GKTW. A 5k is only 3.2 miles and if you don't run you have 18 months to train for it.. We can maybe get Tshirts made up so that those running for GKTW would stand out from all the other runners. Let me know if there is interested in this idea and if so I would be happy to organize the event.
