Organiser's Description

--- Booking for this event has been stopped due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---

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 mile after mile. 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 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.
