runDisney Returns to the Bahamas

runDisney is returning to the Bahamas for the 5th Anniversary Castaway Cay Challenge.  Grab your running shoes and set sail on the Disney Dream for marathon weekend January 14, 2019.

As soon as you finish one of the Walt Disney World marathons you will then be on your way to Port Canaveral to board the Disney Dream. This ultimate runner’s vacation will include a 4-night cruise and entry into the Castaway Cay Challenge.    Once the Disney Dream docks at Castaway Cay on January 16th you’ll head out in the morning for a 3.1-mile race around Disney’s private island.

Bring a bigger suitcase because this exclusive race will give runners not one but 2 new medals, the 5k medallion, and the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge medal.   Wouldn’t that look good to add to your collection?    Race participants will also get race bibs, t-shirts, as well as on-course and post-race refreshments.

As soon as you finish you have the rest of the day to enjoy this private oasis.  Go snorkeling in the lagoon with hidden surprises, grab a tube and float on the beautiful blue ocean water of the adults-only Serenity Bay, or pull up a chair and simply relax on the white sand beaches.   After all that relaxing take time to grab some lunch in one of the open-air BBQ dining locations (huge island chocolate chip cookies included).

Don’t wait too long to book this.   Availability is limited for the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge.
