  • Short Summary

    Cross Country running in Kent with Oxford and Cambridge in competition.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "A Chilly Run. Oxford have first man home, but Cambridge wins team honours by one point in Annual Cross Country Run in a snowstorm."

    Horton Kirby, Kent

    Some sporting lads pose in their college blazers amid driving snow, standing on a small jetty. Cambridge wear light blue blazers, and Oxford, wear dark blue and striped blazers. They have scarves too, as it's snowing quite hard. The boys are helped out of their clothes to reveal their running shorts. They set off in a line over a small bridge, and are then seen splashing through a shallow stream. The winner finishes in driving snow, where a small crowd waits for the brave runners.
