BADGERS, a UKA affiliated running club are pleased to host this exciting event centred on the pretty market town of Atherstone in Warwickshire. This event promises to offer a challenging course taking in the beautiful North Warwickshire countryside including exclusive access through the private Merevale Estate.
The race starts on Long Street and finishes in historic Market Square, providing a number of public houses and cafes looking forward to welcoming you.

The ethos of BADGERS will be central to this event, offering friendly supportive running for all abilities. With a generous cut-off time, appropriately closed roads and massive support from both the local council and commercial enterprise, the BADGERS promise a memorable event.

The BA10k welcome entries from disabled athletes. Please contact the Race Director, in advance of entering, to discuss your needs and requirements.

With free downloadable race photography, technical t-shirt, a unique medal for all finishers and a goody bag funded through local business, the BADGERS are confident that this will be an enjoyable race for all participants.
