Draycote Water September - 10k, 10 Mile, 20 Mile routes

The 10km race begins a short walk from the race village, and begins with a 1km up and back section along the upper pathway of the Dam. Following this runners will complete a clockwise lap of the reservoir.

Runners will certainly be kept on their toes during this race, thanks to some short sharp inclines and declines. Nothing will compare to the sweeping finish along the home straight where runners will be rewarded with well earned refreshments and a finisher's medal.

Meet the organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance. We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

    Great event for marathon training! Easy parking, nice organisers and clean toilets. Goody bag was a bit naff (socks, medal, appletiser and haribo) but for a cheap event it was certainly good enough!
