A NEW runDisney Challenge!

My Twitter and Facebook feeds are FULL of announcements and reactions to this latest news: runDisney just announced a NEW challenge added onto the already full Marathon weekend.  A runDisney cruise, complete with a 5k on Castaway Cay (and of course, a challenge medal to be had for those who run any race during Marathon Weekend).

Do the math: that is 8...yes EIGHT medals for those who are Dopey enough to not only run the 4 races during Marathon Weekend, but also the extra 5k on the cruise.  Oh, AND Dopey enough to plunk down major cash!  The 5k itself is $40, but don't forget, you also have to pay for the cruise.  Not saying I wouldn't love to do it all, but I just don't think this is the time.  Sorry runDisney, you have finally priced me out of a race.  You tried before, with the huge Dopey price tag and the rapidly increasing race fees, but this finally pushed me over the edge!  Oh...and I think my employer might agree that taking that much time from work is not quite desirable either.  Someday...

For those of you who are still curious, here is the official announcement on the runDisney site:

So, will you be going?  What are your thoughts?
