• Short Summary

    Men run, cycle, go through an obstacle course and swim, all in the same race in France.

  • Description

    France.

    Various shots of men running through a town in a race. After running for a mile, they get onto bicycles and cycle for another mile. Then they get off their bikes and do a mile of cross country running that includes a bit of an obstacle course (men struggle under wire close to the ground). The final part of the race is swimming for a mile; men running a river jump in from a small jetty. M/S of the winner (?) - Number 55.

    Could be part of a Pentathlon event.
