Castaway Cay 5k 2017 Edition: Running on the Surface of the Sun 😅

Our Disney cruise this year aboard the Fantasy was as magical as ever. I decided to run the Castway 5k again this trip since I skipped the last one due to the bad weather. Luckily this year there was a slight breeze to make the humidity more tolerable then the races on the island in the past. Races in the Bahamas are still wayyyyy harder then in Florida because of the scorching heat that’s for sure. Disney makes sure to provide plenty of water stops for runners throughout the course as usual and then the ocean is just a few steps away to take a dip in the refreshing water once the race is over. The finisher medals were upgraded since the last race I did on the cruise in 2014. Two thumbs up for the upgrade 👍👍.

The route is still the same as it was in 2014 when I last ran this race. Great course until the people who rent the bicycles start coming out to ride the trails and run you off the course lol 🚲🚲🚲🚲. All in all it was a lot of fun as usual and nothing beats a runDisney event, especially when you don’t have to pay extra for it 💵. Stay Disney my friends and have a magical day ✨.
