  • Description

    Full titles read: "Southern Counties Cross Country Championship - 343 runners from 31 Clubs competed - H.W. Payne of Woodford Green A.C. was first man home."

    Shenfield, Essex.

    Various shots of hundreds of men running cross country; a few spectators line the route. High angle L/S of the winner, HW Payne, crossing the finishing line; he looks about to collapse as a man runs forward and catches him, trying to fan his face.
