Organiser's Description

We’re bringing events back to Draycote Water with COVID-safe measures; beginning with a three-race series of evening 5K/10Ks in June, July and August, the popular 7 at Severn, and a return to our monthly 2nd Sunday events with a 10K in August (alternative distances to follow in later months).

 

To celebrate the return of 7 at Severn on Wednesday 7 July, we’ll be offering both the 7am and 7pm races of 7K, one lap around the water. Do the double and you’ll get a souvenir 7 at Severn buff as well as your twinset of medals.

 

All races are capped at 250 runners until Run Britain guidance changes, so enter early to avoid disappointment!

 

Never run at Draycote Water before? It’s Warwickshire's best kept secret for road runners, offering 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 the kilometres.

 

Some short inclines and downhill stretches keep the landscape changing around you, so you won’t get tired of your surroundings, even as you dig into 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 finisher medal and post-race refreshments.

 

Located three miles south of Rugby and less than 15 minutes from the M1, this secluded site is gloriously peaceful and breath-taking in all seasons. Get yourself out of the city and discover Draycote Water - enter online to guarantee your place.

 

The Race Organiser is proud to be partnered with runr - the fitness and lifestyle brand for people passionate about running. 

runr firmly believe that the best thing about running is the community and hope that by wearing runr products, you'll engage with other runners in everyday life and share stories of triumph and failure.

Keep an eye out for competitions, special offers and more as we work together in 2021. runr will be providing exclusive prizes for top finishers at the 7@Severn and Twilight 10K/5K events in 2021.

Beautiful medal. I ran it in March 2020. Well organized, good facilities, I ran the 10k distance - one lap around the reservoir- perfect. There’s a cafe and playground where family can spend time while runners run. Definitely recommend

Excellent race. This was only my second official race and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It began with everybody shivering at the start line, which got strangers chatting away, so the atmosphere was already high. The route is pretty nice with spectacular views over the reservoir. The facilities are decent too. The post race goodies are nicely different with no needless plastic bags. I'm definitely coming back to do the route again to see how my performance changes, not only that they have different distances which is exciting. I'd just make sure you're there early enough for a parking spot, and definitely car share wherever possible. Although the marshals were easy to follow to where else you could park.

Good event but no t-shirt. This was my first ever 10k and found it to be well organised and instructed. Was very disappointed at the end though to find out that they no longer do the T-shirt’s!

Not a flat race. Beautiful location, however this is not a flat run, which I was disappointed at because it had be sold as a flat run. We’re quite new to doing these run and the distances, so are just deliberately looking for flat ones until we’re stronger runners.

Brilliantly organised event. I completed my first Draycote water 10k on November 10th. The course was brilliantly marshalled with clear markers throughout. Registration was efficient and the team were so friendly. Fantastic post race goodies and really liked the option of running socks vs. finishers t-shirt. I will be definitely signing up for the Draycote series in 2020.

Great event. This was my first time at this event and only my 2nd ever 10k race . It's a nice flat course and good for first timers. Great venue, great organisation of the event (just shame about the weather) but it wont stop me coming again hopefully next time the sun will be shining.

First Draycote 10k. I found this race well organised and the scenery was an added bonus. The description of the course describes it as flat but there a couple of steep inclines but did not spoil the morning run. I found it very enjoyable and I’ll definitely be back.

Draycote Water 10K August. This was my first 10K at Draycote Water and I found that it a good race with lots of things to look at whilst running, it is mostly flat but with some hills to keep it interesting. It is a well organised race with lots of Marshall's and a nice medal. I will so this one again!

My first 10k. Well what can I say apart from overall massively pleased! This is the first event based race I’ve done so wasn’t quite sure what to expect, however I wasn’t disappointed! The members of staff that were there are easy to approach and very responsive to questions I had to ask them, and such a great location to have the run. Was a challenge for myself as my longest distance I had ran to date before the race was 6k so this was a bit of a jump however the energy and motivation from the others runners and staff on the checkpoints will you on I’ve broken previous averages and overall distance. Would highly recommend any runners or new runners to try this event out in the future as it’s one il be doing again!

Great place for a PB. Great route for a 10k, undulating but mostly flat. Quiet and all off road with a nice reservoir to look at whilst running. Very enjoyable, very friendly venue only downside is all the billions of midges, and don't forget £4 for parking! Goodies at the end make up for it :)
