Our local coordinator, and former uphill national cycling champion, Tejvan Pettinger leads us through Oxford.

We arrive at Regent Language Training Oxford, a school of English for adults.

Steve Bahumanya Guy welcomes the Peace Runners to the school.

This amazing school creates an environment where students can learn English and learn about life in a practical and most uplifting way. This is a school that values people, that values growth, that values Peace.

Doris runs with the torch through the garden of the school and inspires all the students and staff to do likewise.

Academic Manager, Oliver Beaumont, carries the torch.

Then Doris joins us for the first 500 metres of our run into Oxford.
