ISST Division 2 Cross Country Championships 


Dear Visiting Athletes, Coaches and Parents,

Bonn International School is privileged to host the 2016 ISST Division II Cross-Country Championships from 10-11 November 2016. I know you will join me in thanking the many members of the entire BIS community who have done so much to make these races a success.

The ISST tournaments were created almost 50 years ago to offer international students an opportunity to join a team and learn the value of working together to reach the very highest level of performance possible. This tradition continues not only here in Bonn during these dates but also in several other European cities as student-athletes from over 20 international schools compete in a variety of ISST tournaments.  

On behalf of the entire BIS community, I would like to say good luck to all visiting teams. We look forward to exciting, competitive races and even better sportsmanship. We also hope you take back to your schools good memories about your time in Bonn. 

Best Wishes,

Gil Grant
