2020 SPAR OMAGH HALF MARATHON & 5K FUN RUN

UPDATE – EVENT CANCELLED
When we last updated everyone the race committee had still hoped that our race still had a chance of taking place or even a date later in the year. However, the safety of everyone involved in this event is our first priority. The runners, marshals, volunteers, our charity partners volunteers as well as everyone’s families has led us to the only decision, we feel is appropriate.
Having taken all factors in to account we have had to cancel this year’s event. This is clearly the last thing we wanted to do. It was felt that as uncertainties continue it was unfair to keep rescheduling the race without knowing if it would go ahead.

IF YOU HAVE ENTERED THIS YEARS RACE YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL FROM SI ENTRIES SETTING OUT THE OPTIONS(check your junk folder)

Because of these exceptional times the rise of virtual races has been a fantastic way to motivate runners to stay fit. We love it and so……

As a race we had to cancel just two weeks away from race day. We do not want the medals and tops to go to waste. Every virtual runner will help ensure we can make a good donation to our charity partner Air Ambulance NI.

From June 1st until August 31st you can run the SPAR OMAGH HALF MARATHON or 5K FUN RUN as a VIRTUAL RUN. Get some training in if you need to and when you are ready just run the distance. Then send us some details of your run and we will send you the amazing 2020 medal and top. With restrictions easing there should be some small socially distanced training possible with friends again. We will post this evening specific to the virtual event..

Keep safe everyone
