One of the best parts about marathon day is checking out all the hand-made signs people hold up to motivate exhausted runners.

Got a good one? Enter it in a new contest sponsored by the organizers of this weekend’s Austin Marathon and Half Marathon.

To enter, take a picture of your sign, share it on Instagram using the #bestAMsign17 hashtag, and tag Austin Marathon. The photo that gets the most Instagram ‘likes’ on Friday, Feb. 24, will win a 2018 race entry and a gift basket from Clif Bar and Nuun Hydration.
