King Edward VI School sixth-former Callum Wilkinson and his younger brother George — who attends Westley Middle School — set personal bests (pbs) when representing the South of England in the RWA Inter-Area match at QEII Stadium, Enfield, on Sunday.

The under-20s’ 5km race was held in conjunction with the senior event and — in reducing his pb by more than 20 seconds to 22 minutes 27 seconds — Callum easily won his category with only Olympian Dominic King (21.56) ahead of him.

In the under-13s’ 2km race, George finished second in 12.45 and sliced more than a minute and a half off his pb.
