Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend Runners Cruised Through the Inaugural Castaway Cay Challenge
After experiencing the magical miles of Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend, more than 700 runners set sail on Disney Cruise Line's Disney Dream to embark on a fun run in the sun in the inaugural Castaway Cay Challenge.
Runners cruised along a brand new 5K course on Disney's private tropical island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, making it the first-ever international runDisney race. Alongside sandy white beaches and sparkling turquoise water, participants enjoyed photo opportunities and entertainment throughout the course.
In order to partake in the Challenge, runners had to complete at least one WDW Marathon Weekend race. After breezing through the finish line, runners received multiple treasures including the Castaway Cay 5K finisher medal as well as a Castaway Cay Challenge medal. Aboard the ship, cruisers also enjoyed special activities and access to merchandise exclusively for Challenge participants.
If you missed out on the inaugural race, it's not too late to sign up to participate in the Disney Princess Half Marathon Castaway Cay Challenge next month!
