The Funniest Race Day Signs of the 2016 NYC Marathon

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.

I can't. This is why I love my sister. πŸ‘‘ @samantharoberts πŸ‘‘ #runselfierepeat #racedaysigns #tcsnycmarathon

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.

#NailedIt.

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.

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys β€œhottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, www.RunSelfieRepeat.com is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
