A new race has been added to the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend -- although it takes place in the middle of the week and in the Bahamas.
On Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, runners will be able to take part in the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge, a joint venture by runDisney and Disney Cruise Line.
The 5K race will take place on Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line's private island in the Bahamas, during a four-night Disney Dream Cruise itinerary that sets sail Jan. 12, 2015 from Port Canaveral.
In addition to Castaway Cay, the cruise stops in Nassau.
Participants that complete the Castaway Cay Challenge will receive two runDisney race medals -- a Castaway Cay 5K medallion plus an inaugural challenge medal.
The cruise will feature exclusive activities for challenge participants, along with special menu items and merchandise.
The 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend begins Jan. 7, 2015 and includes four races at Walt Disney World Parks -- a 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon.
