  • Description

    Full title reads: "Beaconsfield - 130 Women Runners - take part in new event in Women's Athletics - the Southern Counties Cross Country Championship."

    Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

    People gathered around the start of a ladies' cross country race. A fairly large field are lined up for the start. The starter drops his hand and the race begins. Different shots of action from the race. The runners come down a hill. Closer shot of three women as they run. More shots of the runners racing past the camera. The race is very obviously out in the country, there are trees and fields in shot at various points. One woman runs on her own, good shot as the camera follows her for quite a while. We next see this runner putting on her coat, she appears to have been the winner. Another woman comes over to congratulate her. They shake hands.
