Including one individual entrant, Wally Croft, of Herne Hill Harriers, thirty-eight walkers turned out to contest the third annual ten miles road walking championship of the Surrey County AA, held over a two-lap course from the headquarters of the Garratt Walking Club at Mitcham Common. Six clubs were represented, and for the third consecutive year Surrey Walking Club secured the honours. Belgrave Harriers, at the half-distance, were level with the holders, the two clubs at that point totalling 29 points each, but in the latter stages the Surrey men improved their positions, while the Belgrave contingent, through the retirement of F W Thorn, dropped back. As anticipated, Gordon Reginald Goodwin experienced little difficulty in heading the field and retaining his hold of the individual title, which he gained last year.
