28 competitors faced the starter, Miss Chitton, (Cheltenham St. Gregory's A.C.), ran second for most of the distance, but had to drop back to fifth place through injury to the ankle. 19-year-old Ruby Wright (Cheltenham St. Gregory's A.C.) won the race by the convincing margin of 300 yards from H Gilbert (Birmingham Atalanta A.C.)
