Route information
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.

Did the race in 2021
Good morning run, lovely course, friendly helpful volunteers, nice for beginners, really enjoyed it, will be back. Especially liked that there were snack bars at the end that didn't contain nuts! I have a nut allergy and can never eat them! Much appreciated thank you x
Did the race in 2021
Two little uphills, nice scenery as you.Little late start and only gun time, not actual time is little disappointing as I would believe I would smash my PB.
Did the race in 2021
Well organised and friendly, great cafe at the end with beautiful views. Can be quite a windy course
Did the race in 2021
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
Did the race in 2021
Well run event on undulating course great views of reservoir activity thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one
Did the race in 2021
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!

Course was good!Started more or less on timeStewart’s could have been more encouraging! Think only one cheered people on
Did the race in 2018
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'.
Did the race in 2018
Enjoyable, mostly flat fast course. Watch out for the wind particularly in Winter as it exposed in places.3 parking for 2 hours, 4 all day as of Oct 18.
Did the race in 2018
Great race, really friendly, good goody bag. Highly recommend.
