The participation was so good for the last Royal Caribbean 5K run, that the cruise line is bringing it back again. Those wanting to take part in the event will have two opportunities to do so. The first race will take place in Philipsburg, St. Maarten in December 2012 (Oasis of the Seas 12/1/12) and the second in Falmouth, Jamaica in March 2013 (Allure of the Seas 3/10/13).
Guests of either sailing can sign up for the run by booking the race as a shore excursion on the Royal Caribbean website. The fee for the package is $25 for adults and $15 for children. In addition to the race and the awards ceremony that follows, the entire week will be full of additional related activities. A package highlight is the scheduled seminars and lectures, as well as the private meet and greets with high-profile racing athletes. Experts will be on hand throughout the week to share training tips and give advice. Participants will also have the chance to push their personal best time at speed tests onboard the track of the ship.
Non-racers don’t despair! The Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas features seven incredible neighborhoods packed with shows and activities the whole family will enjoy.
