Badminton Park on Sunday 18th September 2016

By kind permission of Their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort.

After 2015’s very successful Badminton Ride, with over 937 riders enjoying a fabulous ride around the Estate in perfect weather, and generous donations made to the Hope for Tomorrow charity which provides mobile chemotherapy and to the Beaufort Hunt which supplied many of the vast team of wonderful volunteers essential to the smooth running of the day, plans are now being made for 2016.

The date is confirmed as Sunday 18th September 2016, and the chosen charity for 2016 is SSAFA the Armed Forces charity. (SSAFA is the charity’s original name, standing for Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen Families Association.)

The 2016 course will be similar to that for 2015, although the Start is being moved back into the field by Huntsman’s Close where it was in 2014 and earlier, the route will be clockwise again and over approximately 10 miles of glorious park and farmland with the famous Badminton House and lake as a (photo!) backdrop.
