Antonym of "Towards" contained in one word?

The only antonym that I can think of is "Away From", but that is two words.

    If away from has the exact meaning you need, why does there have to be a single-word equivalent? – Hellion Nov 15 '14 at 20:31
  • I am trying to make a short sentence. Eliminating a word would aid that goal. – Akiva Nov 15 '14 at 20:33

  • Can you give us your sentence, and some context, please? It would help us give you a good answer! :) – Araucaria Nov 15 '14 at 20:47

    @Akiva Was that comment for Ermanem, maybe? – Araucaria Nov 15 '14 at 21:30

There is the adverb offward (offwards) but it is specifically used to mean the direction away from the land and towards the sea. Though, you can use the word in other contexts too but it is not that common.

: off or away from something as to direction or position; specifically : off or away from the shore the deck was canting
