Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 19 September 6, 1938

The Race

The Race.

The race itself started at a fast pace, with all the Victoria team well to the fore. Taylor of Canterbury led the field on to the road, with Kofoed of Auckland close behind and Scrymgeour handy. As the race proceeded the superior team-work of the Otago team was noticeable. Anderson of Canterbury, handicapped by late arrival and lack of knowledge of the course, sprinted hard at the end of the first lap only to find that he had another round to go. In the circumstances he ran a fine race. The battle for individual honours soon developed into a duel between Kofoed and Scrymgeour, but the N.Z.U. 3-mile champion proved too good for the young Auckland runner.
