The sole purpose of this trip was mainly for the Disneyland Half Marathon, but since we were going to be there for the the weekend, we got three-day passes again and explored some new territory we haven’t been before. Dianne was also able to hang out with us for a day =)
After running the Tinkerbell 10k this past January, and the Castaway Cay 5k later that same week, I felt like a half marathon was in my near future. I decided during the 10k that I was ready for the Disneyland Half Marathon, and maybe even the Dumbo Double Dare! But when registration opened up, I was a little late to get to a computer and the Dumbo was already sold out. So I settled with just the Half.
There’s no better way to see the Disney island of Castaway Cay then to run a 5k first thing in the morning!
I saw this run mentioned on different Disney forums while I was researching before the cruise and was super excited for it. We registered soon after getting on the ship, but they also allow people to register on the day of. Just make sure you have an ID and your room key. I think kids are allowed to register also. I forget the age limit, but there were kids around 10 years old that were running twice as fast as I was!
