Draycote Water 10k - January

Kites Hardwick, Rugby, Warwickshire

Organiser's Description

Warwickshire's best kept secret for road runners, Draycote Water offers smooth, flat roads 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 the kilometres. Some short inclines and downhill stretches keep the landscape changing around you, as you make your way around the Water towards a glorious home straight.

This secluded site is gloriously peaceful and breathtaking in all seasons. Get yourself out of the city and discover Draycote Water.

Well organised, good facilities and great atmosphere

Second 10k series at Draycote Water, really enjoyed it. Plenty of parking space, queues were minimal for all facilities, well organised friendly staff and lovely views on the way round the course.

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!
