This event is now full so all new entries will be placed on a waiting list. To get a waiting list entry just enter as normal. No payment is required at this stage as there is no guarantee of being offered a place. If the Event Organiser is able to offer you a place they will send you an email inviting you to enter. You will then be asked to come back to this site and make your payment to confirm your entry. For more details please see our Waiting List Help.

“A Coventry Way” is an officially recognised long distance path, which circumnavigates the city of Coventry (as shown on Ordnance Survey maps). It is 40 miles long, the majority of which is off-road, and passes through mainly agricultural land in Warwickshire and Solihull.  The Challenge is held annually and the aim is to complete the whole circular route in a day (effectively 15½ hours).  It is open to individual walkers and runners, as well as relay teams of up to 8 members.  There are 7 reasonably evenly spaced checkpoints on the route, providing food, drinks (please bring your own mug) and encouragement!  All entrants are provided with a hot meal at the finish.  A commemorative T-shirt is available to purchase for all those who complete the entire circuit.

  • Registration is from 05:00.
  • Walkers (whether individual or relay) may start at any time after 05:00, but must start before 07:30.  It is strongly recommended to start before 07:00.
  • Runners (whether individual or relays) must not start before 07:00, but must start before 09:30.  Relays are permitted to start up until 10:00.
  • However, please note the opening and closing times of the checkpoints below and plan your start so as to reach each checkpoint whilst it is open.
