16 Of The Funniest Ever Race Signs



I was about two miles into my first marathon when I saw a spectator holding up a sign which said: “Keep going! Not far to go now!”

Regardless of whether this chap was being deliberately sarcastic, had completely lost all sense of time and place, or was just mentally not there, his sign raised a few titters.

Unquestionably, if I had seen this same sign and smug grin at the 17 mile mark, I would have attempted to seriously duff this guy up.

Nothing is funny when you’ve hit the wall. Not even this.

However, when your body is not exhausted, blistered and/or missing toenails, you can appreciate the funny/inventive side of some of these signs!

So I decided to cobble together 16 (seemed like as good a number as any other) of my favourites and post them below.

Enjoy!
