Welcome to the home of the Business Houses Athletic Association

The Business Houses Athletic Association is a work place athletic organisation whose aim is to facilitate colleagues to run together in a series of races. It was formed in 1979 and has branches in Dublin and Cork. The structure of the BHAA is an entirely voluntary one with running groups from various companies coming together to put on running events for each other.


The runners that attend our races are our members. The BHAA recognises that running and socialising together is good for groups of people who work together. We welcome runners of all standards and there is as warm a welcome for the last finishers of a race as the winners.


All our races are put on by running members of our organisation hence the phrase “for runners by runners”. These groups work during the year planning and preparing a race for the BHAA calendar.
