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.

  • Did the 20 Mile in 2019

    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!
