There is no better way to pass an evening than at Warwickshire's best kept secret, Draycote Water. Great for beginner and veteran runners alike, the course loops around the stunning reservoir. Come for the finisher's medal or for a stunning sunset by the lake.

    Beautiful route. Plenty of marshals. Tee shirt and medal were really nice. Would have preferred better snacks in goody bag.

    Course and atmosphere were fab! But when you’ve crossed the finish line to be told you won’t get a medal or T-shirt as they’ve ran out, is just not on! I run with a large running group, and having our group photo at the end with myself and a friend having no medal or T-shirt was such an anti-climax and really quite saddening! May I suggest next time, that you keep medals and t-shirts for everyone who actually pre-booked, then post them out to people who joined on the day! It’s enough to ruin someone’s experience :-(

    First run round Draycote water 7/7/7. Really well organised, friendly and great medals and T-shirt’s.

    Not impressed that there were only large and extra large size t-shirts left. This was disappointing.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Always a nice run but beware of flies as they can be out depending on the weather
