9 Hilarious Shapes Runners Have Made On Their Daily Routes

  • Wine & Dine

    This wine-bottle-shaped 8.5k in Vancouver is the perfect pregame for popping a bottle and relaxing the rest of the day. After more than five miles, you've earned a glass of red.

    Runner Claire Wyckoff has a whole Tumblr devoted to her running shapes—including this impressive T-Rex in honor of Jurassic World.

  • Earn Your Turkey

    If you're not running in the shape of a turkey on Thanksgiving, you're doing it wrong.

    Make Emoji Magic

    Crush the emoji game by running, rather than typing, the best emoji of them all.

  • Run to the Dark Side

    Crossing over to the dark side isn't easy—this route takes some serious dedication, but won't all your Star Wars friends be impressed?

    Love is Love is Love

    Rock On

    Major artistry points go to this runner in Long Beach, CA for putting together this "rock on!" hand symbol. Listening to classic rock during the seven-mile run is mandatory, of course.

  • Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

    Run a few miles in the shape of a cake and, well, don't be surprised if that's what you find yourself craving later. #noshame
