On 30 May 1987, Sri Chinmoy, with the Mayor of Oxford, Bill Fagg, inaugurated a new ‘Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile‘ at Cutteslowe Park, Oxford.
The Peace mile is designed to offer runners and walkers a focused loop dedicated to peace.
After the inauguration of the Peace Mile, a two mile race was organised for local school children.
Peace Mile Today
The Peace Mile is still in use today by local park visitors. Races are also held in the summer months by the UK Sri Chinmoy A.C.
The inauguration of the Peace Mile was mentioned in local Oxford papers, such as the Oxford Mail.
