Grantham ultra runner, Paul Rushworth took part in the annual Coventry Way event. The off-road trail run involved a 40 mile circumference of Coventry with participants never being more than five miles away from the city centre.
Despite the close proximity to the urban city, the route crossed some of Coventry and Warwickshire's finest countryside and included canal tow path, disused railway and field tracks which were swampy in places after recent rain
After leaving the start at Meriden, runners visited Kenilworth, Stoneleigh, Wolston, Brinklow and Bedworth before returning to Meridian via Fillongley.
Paul arrived back in 37th position in a time of 8 hours 8 minutes and 32 seconds.
