Cursus Magnus

The 32nd Annual Cursus Magnus (‘the great race’) was held on Foundation Day, Thursday 14 March. The race was one of the most exciting in many years, with many lead changes throughout. In the early laps of the relay course, Ramsey, Becket and Cranmer all had their turn in the lead. As the race came down to the final runners, it was Ramsey in the lead, with Becket within reach. Indeed, it was Becket House who closed the gap and took the lead in the final lap to win the House relay for the seventh consecutive year. Another highlight of the race was the Alumni vs Staff contest. This was fought with much pride. Key injuries to the staff team meant they were always going to do it tough this year and it was the Alumni team who came home with the win. 

TAS News

Canterbury hosted Cannon Hill in Round 6 of the TAS competition last Saturday. It was a tough fought close contest between the two schools, with Canterbury winning 17 of the 29 games. The finals are now fast approaching with two rounds remaining. 

This week, we travel to Ormiston College in what promises to be a classic battle between the two schools. Fixture details can be found on the College App. TAS results and ladders can be found at http://www.theassociatedschools.com.au/ladders
