Draycote Water

Next Race: 14/11/2021 + 1 other

Draycote Water, Kites Hardwick, RUGBY. CV23 8AB

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.

 

All of our events are organised following government and governing body COVID-19 guidance. We will continue to ensure that we deliver safe and enjoyable events.

 

Entry on the day will be available, subject to availability and a £5 surcharge.
