The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1913
Three Mile Flat Handicap
Three Mile Flat Handicap.
(Best performance, 16min. 22 2/5sec.; T. Rigg, 1912.)
A. Hudson (scr.), 1; H. Williams (scr.), 2; S. R. Ellis (40yds.), 3. Time, 14min, 5 4/5sec.
This race was Hudson's almost from the crack of the pistol; he made short work of the rest of the field and, running the greater part of the distance unpaced, won very easily. It was therefore very disappointing to discover, when all was over, that page 62 one lap (330yds.) had been missed by the track judge, so that a splendid record was lost. The Committee therefore decided to take Hudson's time at the Tournament, should it beat the previous best, as the Club record. Williams deserves a word of praise for the game way in which he stuck to his task, although he must have been feeling the effects of his mile earlier in the afternoon
The inter-Faculty Banner went to Arts and Science, who beat the Law by a two to one majority.
A. T. Duncan carried off the Graduate's Cup for best performance, W. Bennett the Oram Cup for most points.
