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 closest car park and slightly easier to find is just off the eastbound A40 (London direction).

10 Holt Weer Cl, Oxford OX2 8NW

The turn off is about 300 yards after the Summertown Roundabout on the A40. The race starts by the duck pond on part of the Peace Mile. Contact Tejvan if you get lost on 07952 419874
