runDisney Announces Inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge

CCC0769561-613x418runDisney has announced a new race that coincides with the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend but takes place in the Bahamas.

The inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge takes place in January 2015 and it combines the Castaway Cay 5K with any Walt Disney World Marathon race that has a distance of 5K or longer.

Runners who complete a marathon weekend race and then cruise on the January 12 Disney Dream from Port Canaveral can take part in the second half of the challenge – the Castaway Cay 5K when the ship stops at the private island in the Bahamas.

Completion of both races will earn runners the Inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge finisher’s medal in addition to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend medal and the Castaway Cay 5K finisher medal.

Runners who are interested in this event should visit and book the Disney Dream 4-night Bahamian cruise departing on January 12, 2015. Registration for the inaugural Castaway Cay Challenge opens May 23 at 12 p.m. ET. Be sure to use the promotional code RUN at the time of booking the cruise and use your cruise reservation number when registering for the race.
