We study SU(2) gauge theory with two fermion flavors in the adjoint representation. Using a clover improved HEX smeared action and the gradient flow running coupling allows us to simulate with larger lattice size than before. We find an infrared fixed point after a continuum extrapolation in the range 4.5 < g^{*2} < 5. We also measure the mass anomalous dimension and find the value 0.25 < gamma^* < 0.28 at the fixed point.
