A quick introduction to the Warrington Way

The Warrington Way is a 40-mile trail ultramarathon that starts and finishes in the lovely Cheshire village of Lymm, about 5 miles east of Warrington. Runners follow a route which is mostly on tracks, footpaths, field crossings and country lanes to circumnavigate the town of Warrington anticlockwise. The route is waymarked with tape markers, though runners must carry maps and be able to navigate. There are checkpoints at the 10, 20 and 30 mile points, with food and drink provided. There is a hot meal provided at the finish for all runners, and finishers also get the coveted Warrington Way technical T-shirt and medal. The race is organised by Lymm Runners, a UK Athletics registered running club, licensed by the Trail Running Association, and authorised by Warrington Borough Council.

You will find lots more information on this website about the race, including everything you need to know about the race rules, route, kit list, checkpoints and so on, and how to enter. Stay in touch by joining our Facebook Page and following the Warrington Way on Twitter
