    ”The European schools cross country championships is a great initiative to encourage and give school kids another level of competition to aim for beyond their own country. To have the opportunity to run against and meet school children from across Europe will not only promote healthy competition across borders but also give school children the opportunity to explore new cultures and language development that they may be studying at school.I would like to wish Escco every success in getting this initiative off the ground and running in 2014 and hope that you receive the support required to move forward and create a competitive and cultural experience for secondary school children across Europe to enjoy and look forward to each year.”

    We are honoured and proud to have the support of Sonia for the European Schools Cross Country Open in February. Sonia is without a doubt one of the World’s greatest ever female athletes. Not only did Sonia win the 4km and 8km races at the same World CC Championships in 1998, she is a multi World and European champion on the track. Olympic silver medalist over 5,000m and holder of records from 800m to 10,000m. This is only a drop in the ocean in describing what this woman has done in the sport of athletics. Thank you…it will inspire many kids to become champions like yourself.
