About the event
Our Self Transcendence race series is held every summer in Cutteslowe Park, Oxford. Races take place on Monday evenings at 7.00pm. The course is a 1-mile loop around the edge of the park. Mostly the surface is grass, however, a short section is paved therefore spikes are not suitable.
