29 Race Signs That Had Us Laughing All the Way to the Finish Line

By , SparkPeople Blogger
When our Spark team ran the Flying Pig half marathon in May, we loved seeing all of the inspiring, clever and downright funny signs the spectators held up along the course. When you're losing steam with five miles still to go, a clever, eye-catching message can provide just the motivation you need to make it to the finish line. 

After the race, we did a little digging to find some other ideas for great race signs. Here are a few of our favorites, for any roadie warriors seeking creative ideas.
