    We are planning to run the Castaway Cay 5K on our upcoming cruise in February. I was wondering if we would run through sand anywhere on the course? I'm not familiar with this course and just wanted to pack appropriate shoes/ clothes for this event! Tha

    Ahoy Marci –

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Oh how exciting to be sailing this month with Disney Cruise Line! You and your pirate crew must be overjoyed! The Castaway Cay 5K is an amazing event that takes place the morning of your arrival to Castaway Cay. The course will be on paved roads that weave through the island. You will not be running through any sand at all. You will find that the course has limited shade but plenty of water stations throughout, and February weather should be pleasant for your run. Though I have not personally run in a race, I appreciate watching the joy on the racers faces when they return with their awesome medals. Marci, your trip is right around the corner and we wish you good luck in your race. Please come back to see us here again soon!
