ADAM Bateson and Callum Mason, who are both in the Lower Sixth at Lancaster Royal Grammar School and also members of Lancaster and Morecambe Athletics Club, were selected to run for the North West Team in the Male Under 17 category in the recent London Mini Marathon.

The competition consisted of pre-selected athletes representing all regions of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland plus runners from each London Borough.

The race was run over the last three miles of the main London Marathon giving the runners the experience of the marathon finish and cheering crowd. Both Adam and Callum ran very well, Adam completing the course in a time of 15:53 and Callum in 16:18.
