Guess What?

We ran the BADGERS Atherstone 10k yesterday - from start to finish - our pre run excitement was hardly contained as we leapt through the centre of Atherstone and entered the magnificent grounds of Merevale Hall Estate.

We think our route will challenge and delight!

Starting in the centre of Atherstone and running out of the town you will enter the private grounds of Merevale Hall Estate. 

Following the undulating path through the estate you can embraced the spectacular sites of Merevale Hall and Church, before casting an eye across the horizon to the breathtaking views of the Warwickshire and Leicestershire countryside.

Once out of the estate the course promises a healthy mix of ascents and descents. Saving the best to last, the final section of our route, comprises a fast downhill section before finishing under the Arch of Market Square.

It is one cracking route - maybe we are biased
