* DownToTheLastPlay: Hugely averted. [[spoiler:Whit is taken out of the race very early, and Dennis severely injured, and the rest of the marathon is spent limping in last place, [[ImplacableMan determined to finish]].]] All of which makes Jake's "[[CompletelyMissingThePoint dad, you won!]]" utterly heartwarming.

* AdultFear: [[spoiler:Libby and Dennis panic when Jake has run away. Gordon is also pretty concerned when Dennis tells him. One could say that because Dennis is a ManChild for much of the film, this is the moment where he grows up and forces him to face his problems instead of running away from them.]]



* FreezeFrameBonus: At various points in the film, you can see graffiti depicting Dennis's state at that moment. One is of a man clecnhing his fists and striking a pose on a wall, seen behind Dennis during the TrainingMontage as he runs in and out of bollards. Another obvious one is after [[spoiler:Dennis and Gordon fight]]. Dennis runs around the corner and clearly visible on the wall behind him is of a man hanging from a tree, because at that point, he's at his lowest ebb in the film.

* GroinAttackGroinAttack: Several during [[spoiler:the fight between Dennis and Gordon]].
