The Omagh Half Marathon & 5k Run, now in its 34th year, started off as a 10mile race in 1981. In 1986 it was a 12mile race but changed to the Half Marathon distance in 1987. Omagh Junior Chamber organised it from 1981 - 1996 before it was cancelled for three years 1997- 1999. The local running club Omagh Harriers regrouped and relaunched the event in March 2000. The SPAR Omagh Half Marathon Race & 5K Run/Walk has had a steady increase in participation, starting with 240 in the year 2000 but with the slick organization of the hard working Omagh Harriers Half Marathon Committee, it is now one recognized as one of the most prestigious running events in the country and we expect approximately 4000 participants in 2024.
With the Covid 19 pandemic having a major impact on businesses, society and sporting events, the committee took the decision to cancel the race in March 2020 but instead ran it as a very successful virtual race with many participants running the 'Omagh 1/2' in many overseas exotic locations. Unfortunately the Covid situation persisted which meant there was to be no race at all in 2021.
Back with a fresh look and feel in 2022 and 2023 our event sold out in record time so enter early for 2024 to guarantee your place as we may sell out again before the New Year.
