Draycote Water Santa Dash

Come and join the winter festivities at Draycote Water, bring the whole family along for a fun (approximately 8km) run around the reservoir.

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 around the reservoir 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. Boasting sailing, fishing and bird watching clubs, the site is a very popular destination for a family day out in Warwickshire.
