Draycote Water 10k - November
Draycote Water is a 650-acre reservoir set high in the rolling Warwickshire countryside near (and clearly signposted from) the village of Dunchurch. There is a flat five-mile road surrounding the reservoir which is ideal for a run. Take in the stunning views as you enjoy one of our races or visit the country park where you will find plenty of room for outdoor games, picnics and barbecues.
Situated three miles south of Rugby and less than 15 minutes from the M1, this secluded site is gloriously peaceful and breathtaking in all seasons. Get yourself out of the city and discover Draycote Water - enter online to guarantee your place.
