• Short Summary

    Men run along the Ascot racecourse in the Southern Cross Country Championship.

  • Description

    Ascot, Berkshire.

    Several brief shots of horses racing at Ascot, men in morning dress and elegantly-dressed ladies wandering about.

    Cut to M/S of an old man dropping a flag for the start of a race and we see various shots of men running along the Ascot racecourse for the juniors' Southern Cross Country Championship. A crowd of people watch them - it looks quite cold! The seniors start off on their 10 mile race around the same course.
