About this Event

This is your Run Package only description. Please contact our RFFC Team at info@runforfuncruise.com to inquire about additional cruise cabin pricing.

We set sail June 6-13, 2020 onboard the beautiful Norwegian Pearl from gorgeous New York City for 8 days and 7 nights of running for fun under the sun on the East Coast of the United States and Canada.

There are run/race/events planned for Halifax-Nova Scotia, Saint John-New Brunswick, Bar Harbor-Maine, Portland-Maine, and Newport, Rhode Island, as well as lots of on board events for you to enjoy. Included in your run package will be all our running related events on board and on shore.

We also encourage you to become part of our "Runners Give Back" Program where for each port of call we visit, we find out what the needs are of that particular location and donate to that cause.

The Run For Fun Cruise Tours Family has donated over the years:

  • New and Used Runners to those less fortunate in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
  • Sporting equipment for the Youth Sports Academy in Cozumel, Mexico
  • Fem care and hygiene supplies for Hurricane survivors in Barbuda as well as St. Maarten
  • Medical supplies for local hospitals in Costa Maya, Mexico
  • Elementary school supplies in St. Lucia as well as Roatan, Honduras
  • Donations from the group to help plant indigenous trees and plants on the island of Tortola

Let our family take care of your family and create vacation memories that will last a lifetime! We welcome all levels of runners and walkers! There will be something for everyone in your party.

The RFFC team looks forward to welcoming you to the Big Apple, New York City in June for a running vacation like no other. Visit www.runforfuncruise.com for all the details and we'll see you on board!

Please be aware that this group is exclusive to Run For Fun Cruise Tours Inc. and must be reserved and booked through their agency. No outside bookings are permitted

Join us and enjoy your "runcation" with like minded people just like you! Reminder: This is your Run Package only description. Please contact our RFFC Team at info@runforfuncruise.com to inquire about additional cruise cabin pricing.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can contact the Race Director Craig Newton at anytime by emailing cnewton@runforfuncruise.com or by cell at 905-869-8747

What's the refund policy?

Please be advised that there are no refunds on your Run Package-they will be deferred to another itinerary and later sailing date that you will be able to attend. Your cruise is refundable up to final payment; please ask Kim for more details. Please note as well that Norwegian Cruise Lines reserves the right to alter the itinerary at any time.

This is the Run Package; how do I book the cruise?

You can contact the office directly by calling toll free at 1-833-RUN4FUN and speaking with either Kim or Anne. They can also be reached at knewton@runforfuncruise.com and amatwychuk@runforfuncruise.com.

How long are the runs?

We will have a mix of 5K-10K runs/races planned. There will also be the possibility of trail runs as well based on popularity of previous itineraries. Please be advised that run itineraries may change due to factors such as weather, etc.

Is there a medal for each port?

No, there is a participation medal from the RFFC awarded to you at the awards ceremony.

Are there bag drops for each run?

We will work with our partners on each island to ensure your bags are well taken care of.

I'm a walker; am I going to feel out of place?

Absolutely not! The party is in the back with the walkers and we have a lot of them! We also have some of our events geared to having the walkers start the group off first which is fun!

Can I book online?

No. Our mantra has always been "Let Our Family Take Care Of Your Family" when we started the RFFC seven years ago. It is our belief that in order to feel like you are a part of something special, we want to make you feel that way by having the "real world" interaction of speaking to you personally from the start of your reservation. By the time you depart the ship at the end of the week, it is our goal to make you feel like "Family" and we have been very successful working like this.

What about group dinners so we can get to know people better?

We have group dinners planned so that everyone can interact socially and get to know each other

Will there be shore excursions?

Yes, we will work on providing the group options for things to do after the run/race events are finished in the mornings.

I'm a runner but the rest of my family does not run. Will there be things for them to do?

Yes there will. Family and friends are the cornerstone of the trip as they provide the most energy at the events. Information provided to the runners/walkers through continued email updates can be passed along to family and friends so they can "stay in the loop" We welcome them to the events we have set up and will provide additional info. See why we were voted BEST RUNNING VACATION FOR FAMILIES by Runners World!

This sounds awesome! Is is better to wait to book for a better deal?

No. The group space we have blocked is based on a first come first serve basis. Once particular categories are sold out, people are then moved to the next category at that available rate. It is best to book the cruise early with a low refundable deposit, then register for your Run Package.

I'm a member of a running club; can I promote to them?

Yes you can and we love the fact you want to spread the word of the RFFC! Talk to Craig at cnewton@runforfuncruise.com for more details on working with running clubs and Thank You!
