    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      people have left reviews about this being a flat course, which it is, well relatively! there are 2 quite steep small hills to which the decents are pretty short, and for the rest of the course it felt like I was continuously running up hill with long very gradual inclines. maybe just me, it was quite hot too , but just don't expect a totally flat course
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Very warm but a nice run. Atmosphere was ok, but most crowds had cleared when the half marathon runners had finished.As an overall run, I'd say 8 out of 10

    • Did the event in 2018

      This run was a well organised, very scenic and friendly run. Organisation was great, pre run details sent out were spot on and precise. The drink stations on the way round were plentiful for a very hot day. The local scouts were running one of them and they were great and encouraging. There was also a sponge stop too which I was very grateful for.The run is not on closed roads, however I did not feel unsafe at any time. They are rural roads, the marshals were plentiful and they were giving plenty of warning about both cars and runners as needed. There is a cut off time of 3 hours for the run. There was a fab medal at the end and I did need to see the first aiders at the end who did an amazing job.2 small problems:there was a timing issue so the results were late coming out and then there were some discrepancies. However a quick email and it was quickly rectified. All the photos are free to download, however if you are a slower runner there isn't many photos and none at the finish line. The person who finished about 2 mins in front of me was the last person to be photographed. I finished in 2hrs 40, well within the time limit.

    • Did the event in 2018

      Was not impressed. Over priced. Nothing at the end other than a bottle of water a banana and a medal. Roads were not closed and felt at risk on certain parts of the course. 50mph roads with a cone to separate you from the incoming traffic. Will never do this one again.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Atmosphere and crowd participation was fantastic, weather was too hot but if you have a race in July that is to be expected. Forty minute delay was very disappointing, people who don't mind the heat will forgive that as it was the first event but not if it happens again. My son , daughter and myself all measured over 13.1 miles ( our sat navs had it 13.17 to 13.20 miles) this is not a complaint I just wondered if you are confident you measured the course exactly.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      the race was delayed by nearly an hour which made the heat nearly unbearable during the long shadeless stretches. water was given in cups which is horrible as you can't carry it with you. but have to drink it on the spot. the first water station gave out water with a very weird lemony taste to it, without saying it maybe wasn't even water. the water stations with cups weren't great organised as people shouted last minute which side was water, which were sport drinks, but by then it was too late to get in lane. thankfully some visitors hosed us down so we stayed cool. the delay was a massive game changer causing lots of discomfort under the given (stable for weeks) weather conditions the race should have been cancelled. the delay caused parking fees as well.

    Since 1990 this event has been five times host to the National Sprint Championships, and with the perfect venue it is not difficult to see why.

    We bring you this novice, sprint, standard and middle distance event in the perfect triathlon venue. The swim takes place in the boating lake with beautiful views over the Leicestershire and Warwickshire countryside. The cycle is on a fast route with quiet and well maintained roads and the final run section circles the lake

    • Did the Middle in 2018

      I think the organisers should've said the swim MAY be non wetsuit. I brought mine with me just in case but lots didn't. There wasn't much support from Marshalls on the bike route, one on a tight corner sat in his car the whole time literally paying no attention to the race. Another I told a competitor needed assistance, the Marshall didn't seem to know what to do. To top it all off the run was over a mile short? Couldn't we have added an extra lap?
    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Very late start meant family hanging around longer also messed with pre race nutrition. Transition not very organized with regards to bike racking. Very poor.
    • Did the Olympic in 2018

      The note about it being a non wet suit swim was confusing and if you had said it 'may' be a non wet suit swim then all those who didn't bring theirs may have done, I did have mine.

    • Did the event in 2018

      A really nice summer route that is mostly flat. We were lucky enough that the weather was perfect for the 7am run. There was a great turnout for an (almost full) loop around the reservoir. Unfortunately DPD had let the race organisers down and the t-shirts hadn't arrived but I organised for mine to be sent on. The medal is a nice medal and the goodie bag had water, chocolate and haribo in what more could you want before heading to Parkrun.Overall great little summer route that I would definately consider doing again next year.
    • Did the event in 2018

      The concept is simple, a 7 km race at 07:00 (and if you're up for it another at 19:00 \ 07:00 pm) on the 7th day of the 7th month at Severn Trent's Draycote water. Hence Seven @ Severn.This year it was a warm Saturday morning, and a great turnout for the 07:00 race. 341 runners. The Race Organiser has a well established routine at it's Draycote races. So turn-up, park, pick-up race number, warm-up, run, collect medal etc.I've done a few races at Draycote now, and there was a special feeling about this 07:00 race, no doubt helped by the sun, the temperature etc.The course is a partial lap of the reservoir, so there's a short walk from event HQ to the start and then the familiar lap. There was a drinks station part way round, water from cups. And drinks available at the end. A nice medal in the shape of a 7 (what else). Unfortuantely DPD had let the organsiers down and there were no tees at the morning race, but I collected mine in the evening and I understand that they were prepared to send to people who left their address.For those who've never been, there's plenty of parking and toilets at the visitor centre which also has a restaurant. There's also a playground suitable for younger kids if they want to tag along.
    • Did the event in 2018

      This is the second year that I’ve run both races i.e. the 7am and the 7pm race.The field was larger, this year, owing to the fact that the 7/7 was a Saturday. There is very little to criticise about this event. The organisation is excellent. The venue is picturesque, with a slightly undulating route. The medals are excellent quality and the t shirts are decent enough.I really enjoy this race and look forward to next year!

    The Kenilworth Half Marathon route is an undulating out and back course in the town centre and along quiet country lanes with the first and last part on the Town main street. Although there are several small hills, many runners have obtained PB times on the course.


    The course has a rolling road closure in place.

    Reviews
    • Did the event in 2018

      This was a will-organised event which seems to attract a lot of local club runners. Going through the castle at the beginning is cool and the rest of the course is mostly an out and back along closed rural roads. There is a bit down residential streets on the way in and out of the town.

      It's a hilly course so not one for PB-hunters. Plenty of volunteers at the water stations and a heavy first aider presence.

      The medal was decent and chunky and we also got a reasonable long sleeved technical top.

    • Did the event in 2018

      This was the first time I had done this race as it formed part of my training for the Berlin Marathon which is 2 weeks later. It was easy to find not being local to Kenilworth and the race instructions had been sent a couple of weeks before indicating that all the car parks are free which is an added bonus. I arrived about 7:50 so about an hour before the race was due to begin and I managed to get the last car park space right in the town centre. My advice would arrive 20-30 mins earlier to make sure as otherwise, it could lead to time being wasted looking for a car parking space. Finding and getting my race number from registration was a breeze as it's at the local Holiday Inn which is situated near to the start of the race and right near where I had parked :)So the race began at 9:00 which is nice and early and with the weather being very hot it was nice to know that I would be done before 11:00 baring any disasters to myself on the course.It is an out and back course and I can only describe it as undulating as with every up comes a down. This is pretty much along the entire route so if you are after something flat then this isn't the race for you. I enjoyed the hills and being in the countryside it provided beautiful scenery with all the roads on the course being closed. A water station was every 2.5 miles and they were bottles, not cups!! A bonus for any race!You finish and start in the town centre and get a nice downhill sprint finish once you've rounded the clock tower. At the finish, I received two goody bags including the bespoke medal and a long sleeve technical t-shirt. Overall this was a really enjoyable race and well worth the £25 entry fee!
    • Did the event in 2017

      it wasn't until I checked my garmin post race that I realised there was no flat on this course... but it was epic!! From start to finish this was so wonderfully organised... loads of local club runners there which had the capacity to make Justin average non club running jo very scared... all I had to do was stay ahead of the hubby whom was going at the pace he would be pacing the GNR at to get a PB. Well I got so distracted by the course and the views I forgot about it!,  the stations were vottles not cups and cups and marshals great. the finish was lovely and the medal mint!! And a mars bar to boot in my goodie bag!, well done kenilworth running club!,

      Great event, and a good medal, shirt and goody bag for £15 so well done for that one!

      Unfortunately, due to the nature of the course, there are few crowds around the majority of the course, and it can get lonely if, like me, you aren't the fastest runner in the world.

      ALL the marshals and volunteers are lovely and so supportive. I have registered to do another 10km and I'm sure I'll be back again and again.

      Only signed up for this a few days ago as wanted to test where my running is after my ironman and getting back into it. And got a PB!Draycote Reservoir is a lovely place to run around. The registration was easy and you had access to the toilets and cafe as they opened up early for us. The course is a 2 and a  bit laps round the reservoir on tarmac road. It is undulating in parts and these a short sharp hills with nice downhill to get you back up to pace.  Basic water station at every 2.5 miles. There are a small amount of marshalls but as there was mile markers and signs there was no chance of going wrong. You get a print out of your chip timing as well. This one would be ideal for wheelchair users as well. Goody bag. Drink..water..cereal bar..medal.. and a bright yellow t shirt. Which is handy for the winter.For £12. You get a lot for your money.. more than you get for races that cost 5 times that amount. One I would do again!
    • Did the event in 2016

      Whilst there isn't a lot to say about the event, everything I can say is positive.Cheap entry fee (£12- £14)The course is simple, all on tarmac and slightly undulating in places, so it doesn't get boring! The views around the reservoir are very nice too. The race HQ abd facilitirs were close to the car park, which is always a bonus for post-race tired legs.Once you've finished, you get a medal, hi-vis t-shirt and goody bag - which is a lot more than I've had in other events where I've paid a lot more to enter! I wasn't holding my breath for a good performance today, but ended up with a new distance PB so pretty happy with that!Will definitely do this event again!

Well organised, tight first 500m as you get out of the high street but after that running on undulating countryside roads which are all closed. Well marshalled and supported throughout. Cracking medal at the end too. Definitely recommend.

    • Did the Sprint in 2018

      Good course - pretty challenging and nice scenic routes, road a bit rough in places but generally ok. Nice route to run on , mixed terrain but generally solid footing, enjoyed that part even though it was hard.Organisation was poor however- there was no one there when I arrived at all, registration was late opening and the start was delayed by 40 mins (even when they said it would be 30 mins late, they still werent ready). Website said different start time to the pre race email. A lack of signs on the bike course so made you think youd gone wrong. There was a foot down stop on the course but when you got there the officials waved you through so you didnt know what to do. The mic the guy used to give instructions was very muffled and hard to hear There were runners as well as duathletes all starting together and once they fired the gun he suddenly shouted for the duathletes to hold back and wait 1 minute - and then a split second changed his mind. It was chip timed so didnt matter too much but showed the general disorganisation. Could have been better
    • Did the Standard in 2018

      It's a proper XC run so wear the right footwear and don't expect a quick time.The bike course is on some rough, pot holed roads....you need to keep your eyes peeled at all times.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Lovely local race in beautiful location, taking in the stunning grounds of Holdenby House and quiet country roads around surrounding villages.

      Good pre-race information, although organisation on the morning of the race seemed a little bit last minute and led to a delayed start time. Organisers and Marshalls were very friendly and helpful though so this wasn’t a major issue!

      5km run loop was on gravelly estate roads and grass, and was pretty undulating with a steep climb and a couple of longish drags. Definitely a tough run course, although really enjoyable with lovely views.

      20km bike loop was again pretty undulating, with a hilly and technical first half followed by a flatter second half. Some sections of road surface were pretty bad, but on the whole a good, scenic but challenging course. Pretty quiet traffic-wise and well marshalled.

        This was only my second time of running this popular 10k race. There was a large turnout despite the very hot weather. This race forms part of the Warwickshire Road Race League and so is very popular with all of the local clubs.The course remained the same undulating, rural route. The course has an uphill start and the the first 6k is mainly in an upward direction! However, the last 4K is largely downhill and makes for a fast finish under normal conditions. This year was even hotter than last year but plenty of water was available.A quality bespoke medal and commemorative mug were awarded upon completion. A quality event!
      • Did the event in 2017

        This was part of the Warwickshire Road Race League series. The organisation was excellent. The race had about 650 starters, with a large contingent of local clubs.There was an uphill start which went on for the first kilometre. The course itself was very undulating but was set firmly in the Warwickshire countryside. The weather was very hot with little opportunity for shade on the course. However, water stations were plentiful and well manned.At the finish of the race we were given a goody bag with a medal, a mug, water and a flapjack. As challenging as the course is, I would do this race again.

      • Did the event in 2018

        This year was a slightly different course to last year and had twice as many participants, too.The course consisted of circuits of the park, a road section and a canal side section. The course was narrow in parts but this did not cause much of a problem, although my sister was hit rather heavily on the elbow by someone who was pushing through’s mobile phone.The last 100 metres of the race was on rather muddy grass which did slow down any sprint finish.The weather was cold and wet but it was still an enjoyable race.At the end of the race, we were presented with a rather large medal, a banana and some water.I’m looking forward to the Stratford version of the race in September.
      • Did the event in 2018

        Second year I have done this event although the course had been altered slightly this year. Its basicly a lap within the Park, a lap on the road running around the edge of the park (one part closed road the second part a coned of lane) along the canal tow path back into the park for another lap back onto the road cut through the park onto the tow path again back into the park for the finish. At the start there is no particular area for different ability runners so you will find yourself either dodging around people or being dodged round by quicker runners but once the first kilometer is out the way things settle down. There is one water station provided at 5k and this year they had mini bottles of water which I liked perfect fit for the hand and not as much waste. Plenty of people at points within the park to cheer you on. Chunky medal at the finish along with water and bananas.
