Draycote Water - 10K & 5 Mile - July

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.

You'll feel amazing energy from your fellow runners as you make your way around the Water towards a glorious home straight, where we'll be waiting with a finishers' medal, goody bag and a souvenir item of training kit - anything from a technical t-shirt to cold weather headgear.

  • Did the event in 2018

    A really nice summer route that is mostly flat. We were lucky enough that the weather was perfect for the 7am run. There was a great turnout for an (almost full) loop around the reservoir. Unfortunately DPD had let the race organisers down and the t-shirts hadn't arrived but I organised for mine to be sent on. The medal is a nice medal and the goodie bag had water, chocolate and haribo in what more could you want before heading to Parkrun.Overall great little summer route that I would definately consider doing again next year.
  • Did the event in 2018

    The concept is simple, a 7 km race at 07:00 (and if you're up for it another at 19:00 \ 07:00 pm) on the 7th day of the 7th month at Severn Trent's Draycote water. Hence Seven @ Severn.This year it was a warm Saturday morning, and a great turnout for the 07:00 race. 341 runners. The Race Organiser has a well established routine at it's Draycote races. So turn-up, park, pick-up race number, warm-up, run, collect medal etc.I've done a few races at Draycote now, and there was a special feeling about this 07:00 race, no doubt helped by the sun, the temperature etc.The course is a partial lap of the reservoir, so there's a short walk from event HQ to the start and then the familiar lap. There was a drinks station part way round, water from cups. And drinks available at the end. A nice medal in the shape of a 7 (what else). Unfortuantely DPD had let the organsiers down and there were no tees at the morning race, but I collected mine in the evening and I understand that they were prepared to send to people who left their address.For those who've never been, there's plenty of parking and toilets at the visitor centre which also has a restaurant. There's also a playground suitable for younger kids if they want to tag along.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is the second year that I’ve run both races i.e. the 7am and the 7pm race.The field was larger, this year, owing to the fact that the 7/7 was a Saturday. There is very little to criticise about this event. The organisation is excellent. The venue is picturesque, with a slightly undulating route. The medals are excellent quality and the t shirts are decent enough.I really enjoy this race and look forward to next year!

    As this was my very first race I've every done, the atmosphere was really good and there was lots going on too. Everyone helped each other by cheering you especially the volunteers who helped run the series. Very well done can't wait til next year. The medal and t-shirt were a awesome addition.

    The 34th running of this event. Great idea this year extending the run for the first time from 5 miles to 10K. Excellent event as in previous years. The support from the community was as impressive as anywhere. Thank you to organisers, marshals and all who helped make it once again such a great occasion. Look forward to the 35th!

  • Did the event in 2018

    This was only my second time of running this popular 10k race. There was a large turnout despite the very hot weather. This race forms part of the Warwickshire Road Race League and so is very popular with all of the local clubs.The course remained the same undulating, rural route. The course has an uphill start and the the first 6k is mainly in an upward direction! However, the last 4K is largely downhill and makes for a fast finish under normal conditions. This year was even hotter than last year but plenty of water was available.A quality bespoke medal and commemorative mug were awarded upon completion. A quality event!
  • Did the event in 2017

    This was part of the Warwickshire Road Race League series. The organisation was excellent. The race had about 650 starters, with a large contingent of local clubs.There was an uphill start which went on for the first kilometre. The course itself was very undulating but was set firmly in the Warwickshire countryside. The weather was very hot with little opportunity for shade on the course. However, water stations were plentiful and well manned.At the finish of the race we were given a goody bag with a medal, a mug, water and a flapjack. As challenging as the course is, I would do this race again.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Enjoyed this local well organised race.Course was around the Chasewater Country Park on a mixture of tarmac path, trail and a pretty muddy off road country section.The day consisted of a quick race for kids, then either a 5k or 10k which was two loops of the course.Briefing at the start was good with warning to take care of muddy section with puddles.Plenty of friendly encouraging marshalls around the course made for easy navigation.The race had a nice informal family feel to it but was still challenging enough for the more hardcore runners.Good to hear the wonderful sound of the Chasewater steam train during the race.Nice medal and Cadbury creme egg as finish reward.A good one to add to the race calendar.
  • Did the event in 2017

    Ran this as an easter run. A looped course so you don't get the uniqueness of a non looped course. Friendly event and some fancy dress thrown in.There is plenty of room to park and there are no logistical problems.
  • Did the event in 2016

    Quite a nice small event. There is plenty of room at the start of the race for weaving in and out of traffic and the course allows for a nice comfortable race.PB's are possible here.Medals are unique and represent easter. Nice little fun run before the main event for the kids to have some fun.

    A well organised and friendly event. It is not a closed road event but is held nice and early as the name suggests to most road traffic and pedestrian traffic is avoided!

    The T-Shirt and medal are great quality and very appealing to the eye also which is always a great bonus. As a local I will attend this event again and would happily recommend to any other runners looking for a 5K in Birmingham.

    There is a friendly warm up hosted by the organisers at the start and a nice welcome by them at the finish line also. This was a fast course with only two slight inclines and I was able to PB!

  • Did the event in 2018

    I had ran a number of short distance races and it was time to tackle a half marathon distance again. I was hoping to complete it in sub 90 minutes but didn’t quite make it (92 minutes in the end).It was still an enjoyable race; it was well supported as it was the same day as Market Harborough Carnival.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Nice course and good drinks stations, great support too. Only downside were the shower facilities at the school were locked at the start even though they were meant to be available. Marshalls weren’t able to help either.
  • Did the event in 2018

    This is the fourth time I have run this half marathon and I have to say, this was the best year yet! The earlier start time, and cooler weather made for ideal running conditions. This year saw the addition of a 5km race, and together with the fun run, meant there really was something for everyone.Registation was easy, with the option of collecting your race number and timing chip in the weeks before, or registering on the day. The clear pre-race information email covered everything from parking to water stops.The course is varied, starting in the town, with the support of the carnival crowds, and leading out through the villages to quieter country lanes. There were plenty of amazing marshals  along the route with some traffic control measures at road crossing points. The route is undulating, with a nice hill towards the end for both the 10km and half marathon routes, followed by a gradual downhill towards the finish show ground.  A free massage was on offer for competitors. Overall a well organised, friendly and enjoyable run, with some challenging parts - thank you Race Harborough

  • Did the event in 2018

    This is a local charity event, held every year for the last 15 years.The event consists of an 8 mile cycle ride, an 8 mile run or a 3 mile run. This year, the cycle race started 20 mins before the runs. Both runs start at the same time which can be quite hectic. Anyway there is no chip timing and some years no times are recorded.The course is very picturesque and this year the weather was very hot. There were plenty of water stations to cover this. There is a downhill start and, as the finish is at the same place, there is an uphill finish.There is a quality medal at the finish, although it was identical to last year’s.
  • Did the event in 2017

    The Dorridge Fun Run event is in its 14th year. It is a multi discipline event - an 8 mile cycle, 8 mile run and a 3 mile run or walk.i chose to run the 8 mile race. The start was a little chaotic as the 3 mile and 8 mile races started together without seeding. The cycle race started 15 mins earlier.However, after the slow start the field soon thinned out and the race proper was underway. After about 2 miles the 3 mile racers were diverted away and the 8 milers and cyclists carried on around a very scenic route.There were many water stations which were welcome as it was a warm day.The race finished on a slight upward incline but we were welcomed across the line by volunteers offering sweets, drinks and of course a nice medal. I would recommend this local, charity raising event.

  • Did the event in 2017

    5am start in Victoria Park, Leicester, this was an out-and-back into Leicester City Centre.£15 seems a lots for a 5k race, especially as there was no chip timiing, no feed stations needed, and the tech t-shirt needed picking up. Theyalso ran out of some sizes.Probably would give it a miss next year.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I certainly  did!  I never appreciated quite how much rubbish got discarded on Leicester streets, how may slept rough in doorways or how late (or early) partygoers stayed out having been high fives by a merry group of men outside McDonalds. Having said that I thoroughly enjoyed the run, probably helped by it being a glorious morning. Everyone taking part seemed in good spirits despite the start time.  Race tshirt and finishers medal are great quality.

What you need to know about 5k Runs

A 5k run is the perfect distance for a beginner, it’s 3.1 miles and is the shortest and most popular road running distance. It’s a great goal to include in your fitness regime because there’s no pressure, people walk, jog or sprint so it’s totally up to you.

Find local 5k running races

There are loads of great 5k events, they tend to attract a great crowd and are very family orientated. From runs around the London Parks, to night runs and family events, you won’t be short of 5ks to choose from. Most marathon events such as London or Berlin have a 10k and a 5k race as well so it’s worth checking the larger events.
