Ultimate Guide to 5th Annual Castaway Cay Challenge
The Castaway Cay Challenge is back! If you are a runDisney fan, this is the challenge you do not want to miss.
January 16th, 2019 will mark the 5th annual Castaway Cay Challenge at Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. Not only can you take part in this challenge, you have the chance to go on the ultimate runner’s vacation. How does this line up sound?
- January 10th – Walt Disney World 5k
- January 11th – Walt Disney World 10k
- January 12th – Walt Disney World Half Marathon
- January 13th – Walt Disney World Marathon
Then you’ll head over to Port Canaveral on January 14th to hop on board the Disney Dream for an incredible four-night cruise to the Bahamas. Once you dock in Castaway Cay on January 16th, you can lace up those running sneakers to take part in the 5th annual Castaway Cay Challenge! This 3.1 mile race around the island is full of ocean breezes, salty air and palm trees. Sounds like paradise, right?
Participants of the Castaway Cay Challenge receive some pretty great souvenirs. Not only will you add two medals to your collection, (the 5k medallion and Disney Castaway Cay Challenge medal), racers also get a race bib and T-shirt. Of course, there will also be on-course and post-race refreshments.
Afterwards, you’ll have the entire day to enjoy Castaway Cay! Relax in a hammock on the white sand beaches, snorkel in a lagoon with hidden surprises, take a ride down the slides of Pelican Plunge, grab a tube and float the day away on the crystal-blue waters of the adults-only Serenity Bay, and perhaps best of all, you won’t feel bad indulging at lunch in one of the open-air BBQ dining locations (don’t forget the big island chocolate chip cookies!).
Availability is limited for the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge, so book your cruise today and start your countdown to this ultimate runner’s vacation!
