The Warrington Way is a 40 mile circular multi-terrain race in Cheshire, circumnavigating the town of Warrington. It starts and finishes in the village of Lymm to the east of Warrington, and goes anticlockwise around the town. Most of the Way is off-road, on footpaths, field crossings, farm tracks, canal towpaths and the like but there are some sections on road and some major road crossings to be aware of. Much of the route is in the Cheshire countryside but the Way takes in the area’s industrial and transport heritage – including crossing the Bridgewater Canal, the Manchester Ship Canal, the St Helens Canal, and the River Mersey; the West Coast mainline and Liverpool to Manchester mainline railways; and the M6, M62, and M56 motorways! It is open to solo runners (doing the whole distance); pairs (each doing 20 miles) and to 4 person relay teams (with each person doing one 10 mile stage). Entry costs just £30 for solo runners, £45 for pairs and £60 for relay teams (plus a UKA £2 supplement for UK Athletics unaffiliated runners) and includes the fabulous and coveted Warrington Way technical t-shirt and medal at the end for finishers only (you'll have earned it!). Drinks/food are provided at the three checkpoints (10 miles, 20 miles and 30 miles); hot and cold drinks and a hot meal are provided at the finish. For much more information including maps/route description, rules and other stuff see the event website.
We allow cancellations with refunds less a 10% admin fee and place transfers and changes to pairs/relay team members at no cost up to one month before the event (eg to 9 October 2019).
