Countdown to race day!

We are delighted to announce that Barry & John's Dublin Mountain Backyard Ultra is now the official Leinster BYU event as part of the All Ireland BYU Championship for 2024.

There will be four qualifying events, one in each province: Leinster, Ulster, Munster and Connacht.

The top 15 runners from each event will be invited to take part in the All Ireland Championship in August 2024.

In addition, there will be 20 runners selected from the At-Large list, the top performances outside the top 15 from all four BYU events.

Note: you must hold an Irish passport or UK passport (Northern Irish) to be crowned Irish Champion. If you don't, you can still compete as an international participant but cannot be crowned Irish Champion.
