Running Slogans & Sayings

Don’t pass me … I’m not in your age group

My name isn’t Forrest

Running: It’s cheaper than therapy

Run to live. Live to run.

Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit

Death before DNF

Sorry, I’ve got to run

Carbs for life

BACK OF SHIRT: Thanks. I’ve never passed anyone before.

This seemed like such a good idea three weeks ago

Everyday I’m hustlin’

Let’s go yogging

We run this mother

Training to run not running to train

Will run for tacos

Let’s make a run for it

Run hard or walk home

Running’s my favorite


Track Quotes

Lead the pack! Run track!

Don’t just chase your dreams. Run them down!

Why is everyone chasing me?

400m is the new 100m

Don’t let anybody tell you, you can’t just because they can’t

If we played tag, you’d be it forever

We don’t need wings to fly

Baby got track!

I can handle any hurdle

I’ve got a track record

There’s no time outs in track


Cross Country Sayings

Cross country: our sport is your sport’s punishment

Anyone can run 100 meters. It’s the next 2900, 3900, or 4900 that count!

Finally, a good use for golf courses

XC: it’s one hill of a sport

Mud, sweat, & tears

Only a runner doesn’t laugh at the word “fartlek”

May the course be with you

No half times. No time outs. No substitutions. XX: the only true sport.

If you can read this, we’re just warming up

The faster you run, the quicker you’re done

Comrades in sweat

Real athletes run miles not yards
