    Hello! I am interested in running the Castaway Cay 5k and I love the merchandise for the race! I have noticed a recent change in the medal given out at the end of the race which has no reference to the 5k at all. Are these changes permanent?

    Welcome aboard, Jennifer!

    Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, is one of my favorite places in the world! It really offers something for everyone with places to relax and enjoy the serenity, plus all sorts of activities to keep even the most active folks engaged and entertained!

    The Castaway Cay 5K is a runDisney fun run that takes place each time one of Disney's ships visits the island. There will be information once you're onboard about how to register, and you can also find that in your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App once you board the ship. I really enjoyed running this race! There are water stops throughout the course which takes runners down the old airstrip, around the bike loop, continuing on the airstrip before turning around and heading back the same way. You'll get a nice overview of the beauty of the island as you set out on the run first thing in the morning, and lots of time to enjoy the beach afterwards.

    Merchandise! Yes! There is Castaway Cay 5K merchandise in the gift shops on the island, and each participant does receive a medal at the end of the race. The medal has changed a few times, but I checked in with my friends at Disney Cruise Line this week and found out that the current medal is a soft rubber material. It is really cute, and I wish I could share a picture of it with you on here but I don't have a way to do so. However, it has the Disney Cruise Line logo on the top, a Disney cruise ship on the bottom, and the middle of the medal features the Castaway Cay 5K logo in red and yellow large letters. There is no mistaking this is a medal for the 5K! You're going to love adding it to your collection, Jennifer!

    Have so much fun and enjoy all of the magic of sailing with Disney!
