The best part about running the New York City Marathon isn't the medal or sense of accomplishment you get when you cross the finish line. The best part about the race is watching the unofficial hilarious race day sign contest. Every year New Yorkers SHOW UP with some of the funniest, wittiest, and punny-est pieces of poster board the world has ever seen.
Without further ado, here are the unofficial winners of the 2016 New York City Marathon
Three time winner of the best NYC Marathon race day sign goes to @SamanthaRoberts.
My Mom and my Aunt brought their A-Game in an attempt to take down my sister.
My sister SHOWED UP WITH OPTIONS.
The only sign that ACTUALLY made me laugh out loud at mile 25.
Sign making is almost as difficult.
Tell him boy BYE.
Quite possibly the best pun ever.
RUN! RUN! RUN!
THESE SIGNS WIN EVERYTHING.
Stranger Things have happened.
The funniest sign ever.
WHERE THE NASTY WOMEN AT!
RIP everyone who lives in a building without an elevator.
Wait for it.
Enjoy your bragging rights and on behalf of all 50,000 runners, we thank you for making us laugh when we wanted to crawl into the fetal position and die. Spectators are the reason the New York City marathon is the greatest marathon in the world! It's a 26.2 mile block party!
Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
