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.

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.
