The Omagh Half Marathon & 5k Run, now in its 32nd 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 with nearly 4000 runners in April 2019.
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.
Even though Covid still exists, We are back and have planned another very exciting event for 2022! There is a top quality long-sleeved 1/4 zip top guaranteed for All Half Marathon entries plus newly designed medals for All finishers including the 5k finishers. Chip timing, fast course, race pacers, street entertainment, finish line refreshments are all on offer to make this one of the top events in the 2022 sporting calendar.
This year's Omagh Half Marathon/5k chosen charities are the Local Omagh Mens Shed and Zest.
