    My daughter is anxiously awaiting our cruise, January 4th to the Bahamas, and Castaway Cay! She has been training for the Disney Castaway 5K, and I wanted to make sure that they will definitley be having the run when we are there, are there daily races?

    Countdown to your 2016 magical voyage, Gloria!

    How awesome to hear that you'll be kicking off the new year with an amazing trip to the Bahamas. You'll be enjoying the warm sun and fresh ocean breeze while basking in the sun on Castaway Cay

    Your daughter will have a great fun run at the Castaway Cay 5K -- so make sure she continues training for that. This fun activity on Disney's private island is definitely something to look forward to. It's a gorgeous trail and there's no pressure at all about when to complete it. So, her running, walking, skipping and dancing pace will be perfect. There will be a medal waiting for her at the finish line. Don't forget to pick up your Castaway Cay 5K souvenir shirt while on the island... you can't get it anywhere else!

    While on the ship, she can continue her walking and running exercise on the ship's walking/jogging path on Deck 4. There are no daily races, but the Castaway Cay 5K is usually offered once the ship docks on the island. Make sure to check the Personal Navigator on meeting times and locations. You can also stop by the Guest Services desk to check on these logistics and any registration details. Try to arrive early for registration and bib pickup. The 5K participants will be walking off the ship all at the same time to the start line. 

    Have an awesome vacation, Gloria. Please let us know if you have any other questions that we can help answer. Enjoy all the fun activities at Castaway Cay!
