    Full titles read: "72 Miner Athletes - compete in annual 8 mile race around the City."

    Cardiff, Wales.

    M/S panning along a line of young men, at the starting line before their race around the city. It looks quite cold and wet - they must be freezing! L/S of them starting off as a pistol is fired; a huge crowd cheers them on.

    Several shots of runners in the race, followed by numerous men and boys on bikes and a few cars. L/S of the winner, number 16, running down a street towards us, accompanied by several policemen on bicycles; as he crosses the finish line lots of men crowd around him and shake his hand. M/S of the winner posing with another man; he is hoisted onto the shoulders of two men, along with the second and third winners.
