Provincial Championships at Silver-stream. Non-competitors will run from the 'Varsity gymnasium.
The teams for the Championships are as follows:—
A Team:—Scrymgeour, Newall, de la Mare, Burge, Henderson, O'Flynn.
B Team:—Morpeth, Farquar, Oliver, Fenton, S. J. Wilson, Bowyer.
Junior:—C. G. Wilson, Canter, Hillyer.
'Varsity should be able to do better in the Provincial Championships than was the case in the Dorne Cup race in June. This race, which is run at Silverstream, is over a distance of 6¼ miles, the same as that for the New Zealand University Championships at Auckland next month. This year the old B grade race has been abolished, but has been replaced by a handicap event. This is a new departure for Wellington harriers, but it is hoped that 'Varsity men like Henderson and others of the medium runners should profit by the new system. In addition a shorter junior race of three miles has been introduced, in which the under 19 class will be given a chance.
