 Is there a cut off time?

The Strabane Lifford Half Marathon is a running race with a strict  3-hour cut-off point (min 14 minute miles).

After 3 hours, all roads will be reopened throughout the race route to safely get traffic flowing again and protect all participants. The sweep car will collect those at the back of the race unable to keep up with the allotted pace time (min 14 minute miles).

After this time, individuals are at their own risk, they must use the footpath and comply with the rules of the highway, no marshals will remain on the course after this time as the race is over.
