This event had three starters and was won by a Frenchman we know only as J. Treyens, who recorded the hideous winning time of 21.0. Second was Albert Charbonnel, which gives an estimate of the level of competition, as Charbonnel was a distance runner who won the Paris Marathon three times, and in 1900 finished second at the Paris Exposition in the 6-hour race. Brit Alfred Downer did not finish, after pulling a muscle, but he certainly would have won had he finished. In 1895, Downer had equalled the 100 yard world record of 9.8 at a meet in Stoke-on-Trent.
