A Cook's Special Trip to the Southern Cross Country Championships, 1931

The 2017 Southern Cross Country Championships take place at Parliament Hill Fields on January 28th. Back in 1931, travel agent Thomas Cook was running a special railway trip from London Liverpool Street to Shenfield in Essex (found this flyer tucked in an old notebook in the Kent AC archives). Cutting it a bit fine with the warm up, train arriving at 2:30 pm with junior race starting at 3 pm and Seniors at 3.15. Imagine this was mostly spectators, sure the runners would have there a bit earlier.
