Beragh 5 Mile Road Race and 5K Fun Run/Walk

The Beragh 5 Mile Road Race and 5K Fun Run/Walk takes place at 11am on Saturday 31st March 2018 at St Mary’s Park.

Entry fee is £10 for the 5 mile run and £7 for the 5k run.

T-shirts will be supplied to the first 250 entrants for the five mile event. Head buffs will be on offer for the first 250 entrants to the 5K. Pre-registration takes place at St Mary’s Pavilion on Friday 30th March from 7pm-9pm.
A prize will be on offer for breaking Kenyan athlete Vincent Kiprotich’s 24:51 course record.

The popular community event includes two separate routes through the scenic Mid Tyrone countryside.

The chip-timed 5 Mile Road Race route has in recent years attracted some of the best running talent across the region. However at its core, the Beragh 5 remains a community driven event for all ages and abilities with the 5K Fun Run/Walk route.

Race co-ordinator Adrian Donnelly said inclusivity remains at the heart of the popular event.

This year’s run will include the second batch of graduates from the Beragh ‘Couch to 5K’ programme’.

 

 “We successfully launched the Couch to 5K last year, and led by a team of coaches and volunteers, the programme has once again helped a new group of participants to take on the challenge of running the March 31 5K race,” said Adrian.

With the reputation of one of best organised runs in the North, hundreds of participants are once again expected in Beragh at the end of the month.

With the Omagh Half Marathon taking place one week later on April 7, Adrian said the Beragh 5 Mile event offers the ideal preparation.

SSE is once again the main sponsor for the event, with the Motor Neurone Disease Association confirmed at the nominated charity for 2018.

Beragh GAA club chairman Seamus Boyle said, “A tremendous volunteer effort goes in each year by our dedicated members and the race organising committee to produce the Beragh 5.

I would like to extend my thanks to all our sponsors for their continuing support and encourage everyone to come down to St Mary’s Park on March 31 for what will be another fantastic community event.”
