“A Coventry Way” is an officially recognised long distance countryside route, circumnavigating the city of Coventry.

Put together in the early seventies from existing public rights of way, many of which at the time were not used and had fallen into disrepair and were completely overgrown, and in some places impassable, it is 40 miles long, it is 40 miles long and features on modern Ordnance Survey maps.

Never more than 5 miles or so from the centre of Coventry the majority of the route is off-road, and passes through mainly agricultural land in Warwickshire and Solihull.

There is an annual race on this route:  https://www.acoventryway.org.uk/challenge/  Anyone reporting an FKT will need to beat the race record.
