From the organiser

Warwickshire's best kept secret for road runners, Draycote Water offers smooth, flat road with stunning reservoir and countryside views.

Running alongside the water, using dam wall pathways and a perimeter service road, you'll find mesmerising views of nature trails, wildlife and boats on the water as you notch up kilometre after kilometre. Some short inclines and downhill stretches keep the landscape changing around you, so you'll not get tired of your surroundings, even as you dig in to the later stages of a race.

Results and Prizes

Results will be uploaded live to our website and, where possible/practical, timing print-outs will be available at the race. In all cases, results will be communicated to all pre-registered participants within 24 hours of the event.

All finishers will receive a medal and a goody bag on completing the race.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three runners overall and the top runner in each of the veteran categories (V40/V50/V60/V70) for both males and females. Where possible, we will endeavour to present individual race prizes as soon as validated on the day.

For safety reasons, it is suggested that you run without music so you can stay alert and aware of your surroundings and other runners. This way you can also soak up the energy and atmosphere and unplug!

For racing we recommend you wear your normal running kit and trainers and don't forget to keep an eye on the weather in case you require any waterproofs.

Spectators

Spectators are best placed around the finish area where they will see runners pass at the end of each of the the part/full laps.

    Hi there. Just to confirm, the race is at 7pm. This year the Draycote Water Seven @ Severn 2019 consists only of a 7pm race, there will not be a 7am race this year.
