Sorry for not answering your questions in my first response.  OM2, 3 or 4 will work for the MGBSX1. However, with 10G prices coming down, you might want to invest in OM3 or OM4 in the event you upgrade to our SG500X products.

If you are talking about

If you are talking about patch cables, then you don't need OM3.  Otherwise, if you are installing new fiber runs, I would go OM3, or higher ,in the event you migrate to 10G.

2 fiber runs of approximately

2 fiber runs of approximately 95m and 1 run of approximately 192m. It's safe to assume that the Cisco MGBSX1 transceivers aren't dependent upon OM2, OM3, or OM4? Any will work?
