11 Best Funny Signs At Running Races

“This marathon would be fun if it wasn’t for all the running!”

When you’re racing, whether a marathon, half marathon, 10K or 5K, there comes a point in the race when you’re in no mood to hear what anyone has to say.

You know the attitude I’m talkin’ about.

If someone cheers you on and says “Nice pace!” you think, “yeah, right, for my grandma.”

If someone says,” Way to go!” you think “hmmmphhhh.”

And the most dreaded of all things to hear: “The finish line is just around the corner!”  We all know how that one ends.

But, on the other hand, a great, silent sign can really shift your crummy attitude. You have a good laugh and your energy picks up for the rest of the race.

We appreciate all the supporters who come out to the races and know just what to say…on their signs.

Here are a few of the funny signs we’ve seen lately:


“I’m sure it seemed like a good idea 4 months ago.”



“When the going gets tough, you’re probably only on Mile 5.”



“Blisters are Braille for ‘AWESOME'”



“This marathon would be FUN if it wasn’t for all the RUNNING!”



“Runners don’t die, they only smell like it.”



“STOPPING: Ain’t nobody got time for that!!”



“This pain isn’t as bad as a kidney stone.”



“You’re almost there!! (That’s what she said.)” 



“Humpty Dumpty had wall issues too!!”



“Oh Hell! You’ve come this far…you may as well finish!”



“The faster YOU RUN, the sooner we’ll be DRUNK!”
