New Castaway Cay Challenge Added To 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Historically, my best friend and I have gone on a cruise following the runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. To us, it was a treat for completing a distance challenge and a perfect way to relax. Year after year, we have seen multiple other runners adorned in their shirts commemorating their race.
runDisney and Disney Cruise Lines picked up on this trend. Earlier this week, runDisney announced the ultimate finish to the race experience – a joint venture between runDisney and DCL, the new Disney Castaway Cay Challenge. Runners who participate during any Marathon Weekend event (5K, 10K, half marathon and/or full marathon, January 7-11) and book the January 12th Disney Dream Cruise can compete in the inaugural Castaway Cay Challenge on Jan. 14. The new Challenge, a special 5K race, on Disney Cruse Line's Private Bahama Island, Castaway Cay. Every runner who finishes this new runDisney Challenge event will earn two medals - an inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge medal and a Castaway Cay 5K medallion, plus any medals earned for running any Disney Marathon Weekend events.
This means any Dopey runner who adds the Disney Dream experience to their race weekend will walk away with 8 medals!!!!!! The Castaway Cay Challenge takes place during the 4-night Disney Dream cruise itinerary that sets sail Jan. 12, 2015 from Port Canaveral, Florida and includes a stop in Nassau in addition to Castaway Cay. The cruise will feature exclusive activities designed for Castaway Cay Challenge participants, plus special menu items and merchandise. To sign up for the Castaway Cay Challenge, runners must book the Jan. 12, 2015 Disney Dream cruise at www.disneycruise.com and then register for the Castaway Cay Challenge at www.runDisney.com. Race registration opens May 23.
