  • Short Summary

    Cross country runners brave the cold in Lancashire.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Cross Country Sports. Keen racing for the Sir William Hopwood Trophy."

    Shaw, Lancashire

    M/S of a group of runners lining up for the race. It's rather misty and cold. The runners hop about and rub their legs to prepare. We see the start of the race, and they run off. A couple of runners are seen at the finish, amid the crowd all wearing big winter coats. There is a C/U of Number 74, who was probably the winner, standing in front of the camera, still slightly out of breath.
