”I believe this is a fantastic idea to give school going children the opportunity to compete against schools from other countries. It will give young people the incentive to train knowing that they have a big event like this to focus on and the experience they will gain will be invaluable. I have no doubt this event will be a huge success and I want to wish the organisers and competitors all the best. I wish I was 16 years old again.” Having Catherina McKiernan support ESCCO 2014 is incredible. To have one of the World’s greatest ever cross country athletes backing this event with it’s long term vision of promoting athletics and environmental sustainability in Europe is quite humbling. Thank you very much Catherina.
