“A Coventry Way” is a 40 mile long distance countryside route, circumnavigating the city of Coventry. It is officially recognised and features on modern Ordnance Survey maps. It was put together in the early nineteen-seventies from existing public rights of way, many of which at the time were not used and had fallen into disrepair, and in some places were impassable.

A Coventry Way Association was formed to promote the route and supports local authorities to keep the path accessible.

The Cyril Bean Annual Challenge offers walkers and runners an opportunity to navigate the whole 40-mile route non-stop in one day.

Although rarely more than 5 miles or so from the centre of Coventry the large majority of the path is off-road, and passes through mainly agricultural land in Warwickshire and Solihull.
