Running shirt DIY inspired by the Disney Parks attraction, “it’s a small world”

Why, it’s truly a small running world after all! In celebration of Global Running Day, add a touch of Disney magic to your at-home miles with a running shirt DIY inspired by the Disney Parks attraction, “it’s a small world.” The beloved attraction is Walt’s reminder for guests around the world to remember the things we have in common. Much like the attraction, Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running and the running community, and encourages people of all ages and abilities to get out and move. Whether you head out to run under just one moon or a golden sun, do so in runDisney style!

runDisney playlist on phone

Love listening to some sort of audio while you’re out on a run? For some runners, weekly miles are important time alone with their thoughts. For others, a good distraction is what helps them through a run. From podcasts to playlists to audiobooks, we’re sharing a round-up of Disney content to listen to during your at-home miles, perfect for your upcoming Global Running Day run!

From all of us at runDisney, we want to thank you for being a part of our magical running community. Share how you’re getting out to run on Global Running Day with us in social using #runDisney on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
