The Winter Wychavon Way
January 27th 2024
The event follows the Wychavon Way which runs the length of Worcestershire covering 40.6 miles from the town of Droitwich Spa to Broadway, the route follows canals/rivers and the undulating meadows of Worcestershire with one significant climb up Bredon Hill with great views over the vale of Evesham.
The Wychavon Way was created in 1977 for the Queens Silver Jubilee. In 2012, in a joint partnership between Wychavon and Worcestershire county councils, £25,000 was spent re-waymarking and re-launching the national trail. The route has been changed to remain entirely within Worcestershire. The councils hoped to attract more than £250k in benefits to the local economy by users of the footpath. Beyond Marathon Ltd first organised this event in 2015, and again in 2018 and 2019. We handed it to our friends at Up Hill Down Dale who operated it in 2020, 2022 and 2023. We are picking it back up from 2024.
The route has an overall cut-off time of 12 hours.
