  • Description

    High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

    Title: "285 RUNNERS complete in North of Thames Cross-Country Championships, over ankle deep 7 miles Course - H. W. Payne (Woodford Green) won in 44m. 26 secs."

    L/S of a crowd of runners gathered on one side of a meadow, all at once they start to run and then, all at once they stop - a false start? L/S of the successful second start of the cross country race. M/S of runners racing along a muddy track, they run towards the camera, passing cheering spectators. M/S of a group of runners running over a muddy field. M/S of lone competitor running between two cheering crowds of supporters to the finishing line - presumably this is the winner, Payne. M/S of the three winning competitors posing for the camera, they all look out of breath, Payne stands on the left of the screen.

    After a second of spacing, cuts / out takes start at 01:15:56. Cuts are the same or very similar to edited story.
