The Canterbury Schools’ team completed a marathon – 42.195km (211 laps of our 200m track!),on Wednesday after school on the back field! They ran it in 2 hours 7 minutes and 44 seconds and were 21st in the World out of 51 teams and first of the three NZ teams beating Ashburton Intermediate (2.10) and Wellington Schools (2.24).
