Oxford Self-Transcendence Summer Races
A series of races held every summer on Monday evenings at 7pm
About the event
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.
2020 Event Calendar
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we have taken the decision to cancel all our races this year. Some of our helpers are on the risk list so will not try for races in early June.
