  • Short Summary

    Walking race in Greenwich won by C W Hyde of Enfield Athletics Club.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Greenwich. 7 miles in 54 mins. 27 3/5 secs. C W Hyde (Enfield AC) wins Road Walkers 'classic' from field of 208."

    Greenwich, London.

    Shots of a large field of walkers setting out from start of race. Various shots of the walkers walking along roads on course. At one stage we see a bus crash into a motorcycle as the walkers pass. More shots of the race. The winner is clapped home.

    N.B. Either these walkers are very good or this film has been transferred at the wrong speed.
