Omagh Wheelers CC once again promote their annual Western Hills sportive on Sunday 25th September 2016. Based in the foothills of the Sperrin mountains, Omagh is surrounded by beautiful scenery and epic roads.
This year’s event will feature two routes covering 100 miles and 100kms. The 100mile ‘hilly’ route traverses Tyrone, before bridging through Donegal and has a total ascent of 5808ft! The shorter 100kms route is still tough going with a total ascent of 3363ft.
All finishers will receive a ‘Western Hills Certificate’ confirming that they are definitely ‘mad for the hills’. The usual excellent spread of food will be provided afterwards, and showers will be available. Omagh Wheelers are renowned for running professional events and providing a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Pre-entry costs £15 via www.entrycentral.com/westernhills (closes 19th September). Late entries cost £20 (on the day). Location: Youth Sports, Killyclogher road, Omagh. BT79 7NZ.
