Hi, English is not my mother tongue therefore apologies. I want to put a motivational sign at a marathon:
"Keep on dragging..[...]"
can you say that in English? Does that make sense? I am not trying to use the most perfect way of saying it, just want sth which is supposed to lift them up at the last miles when its getting hard... like "pull through"
thank you in advance!

Well, it doesn't come across as motivating.
If I said something like, "I had to drag myself to the finish line", it would mean that it was difficult to get to the finish line because I was so exhausted.
But "Keep on dragging" doesn't really come across as, "Keep going, even if you're exhausted!", but more like, "Keep being exhausted!" You probably want to avoid words that emphasize or remind a person of their feelings of tiredness.
A more motivating statement might be, "Keep up the pace!"1
