Draycote Water must be Warwickshire's best kept secret for road runners, offering stunning reservoir and countryside views. Runners can enjoy running alongside the water, using the dam wall pathways and the perimeter service road. There will be wonderful views of nature trails, wildlife and boats out on the water.
The event will have a brilliant atmosphere created by your fellow runners and the wonderful marshals, especially as you head towards the glorious home straight, where the organising team will be waiting with a finisher medal and post-race refreshments.
The Route is generally flat with a few short inclines, entirely on tarmac paths, and consists of laps around the reservoir and is suitable for runners of all abilities.

A nice firm surface with some inclines but not too steep. Having never been before I would have appreciated better lineage e.g. to toilets, where to collect bibs. Otherwise organisation good

Nice event, good easy to access location and a relatively flat and fast course. Start line can be a bit congested as the start is on a narrow path, but once on the move it isn't a problem. Handy water stations (even for the 10k) and good sign posting.Medal is OK, and Haribo is always a nice sight!

It's a good run, well organised and a generally pretty flat course. You'll see that you have to pay up to £17. That may not be a surprise ... you have to pay to enter runs except the brilliant 'Park Run'. I was miffed when I arrived to discover that on top of the entry fee I had to pay a pretty hefty fee for parking.. I just kinda assumed parking would be included. Suddenly 'value for money' was reduced. That is why I only gave 2 stars for 'organisation'.
