Omagh Half Marathon

Posted

In excellent conditions over 2000 athletes limbered up for the 30th edition of the Omagh half marathon, hosted as ever by the Harriers Athletic Club in the town and run on a one lap course offering undulating terrain and Pb potential.

On a day for fast times Darren Hamilton was the first of the North Down contingent to claim his medal, 1:20.44 (38th) just outside his Pb, but a fine effort nonetheless. Paul Floyd (1:21.32/50th) maintained his recent high standards with a new best and finished just in front of Ben Caughers (55th) who made a pleasing return to form in posting 1:22.05. 

Christopher Ballantine recorded 1:31.26, Susan Spence (1:48.04) continued her progress towards the Belfast Marathon, whilst Cliff McCausland completed his third race of the week and showed no ill effects in recording 1:48.21. Nicola Newell finished in 2:04.19, whilst Pat O’Driscoll (2:29.04) improved on his 2018 time, despite an unscheduled detour to place a Grand National bet!
