Half Marathon Signs for Runners

My husband, Nathan has run in many half marathons and a marathon.  He’s done the Marine Corps Historic Half here in Fredericksburg several times.

Besides clapping and cheering, one of the best things runners love to see on the course are handmade signs of encouragement.  I love making signs.

Some signs that I have seen in the crowds include:

  • Smile, remember you paid for this
  • Should I call you an Uber?
  • Free High Fives
  • Beer and Bragging rights, just ahead
  • I trained all week to hold this sign!
  • The end is very far
  • You got this!
  • Who needs toenails anyway?
  • Seems like a lot of effort for a free banana
  • Run Faster!
  • Keep Chafing your dreams!
  • Power Up!
  • Go random stranger
  • Smile, if you peed a little.
  • On a scale of 1-10, you’re a 13.1
