I'm a runner. I think it would make a good excursion for a 5k Race on an island. It could be a point system competition amoung the Cruise Lines and Cruise Ships.
I see it like this. Make it $30, $5 goes to a local charity, most races have a charity and this helps us runners do it. you get a point for your ship and cruise line to enter, a point to finish, a point for everyone you finish ahead of. 5 points to win, 3 points for 2nd 1 point for 3rd for best male and female runner.
I can see it needing 2 guides on bicycles one to lead and one to follow. If it is a big race (20 plus people) a third guide to roam. Water and a drink at the end. A small daily trophy and a running total each month.
I think it would be fun. And I get to run safely on an island rather than accidentally run into an unsafe section of town, like I did in St Thomas. A mile from the port it got pretty seedy.
So am I crazy or not? Do people want to do this on vacation?
Oh yea and charge a fiver to go watch, covers the transportation and the drink
