Our Self Transcendence race series is held in Cutteslowe Park. Races take place on Monday evenings at 7.00 pm. The course is a 1-mile loop around the edge of the park. Mostly the surface is grass, however, a short section is paved.

Directions to start line: There are 2 car parks and 2 entrances to Cutteslowe Park, either is fine. The closer car park and slightly easier to find is just off the eastbound A40 (London direction).
