The seventh Women's A.A.A. National Junior Cross-Country Championships took place at Prestbury Perk Racecourse, Cheltenham. The 2¼ mile course was made up of two laps of the inner course with a gate being the only obstacle. Admission to the event was 6d. Last year's individual winner, Miss Mary Holt, was ineligible.
Miss M. Cummins (Cheltenham St. Gregory's AC) put in a splendid effort and led the field for the greater part of the race but was overtaken by the winner Miss I. Riggott (Sheffield United Harriers) and runner up Miss J. Holmes (Small Heath Harriers). Miss Riggott's winning time was 19:48 only 2 seconds ahead of Miss Holmes.
