Kim Reeve was the lone Harrier at the Kirbymoorside 10km race today. The route undulates around the North Yorkshire countryside starting and finishing, of course, in Kirkbymoorside. It takes in the local villages of Gillamoor and Fadmoor before returning on a fast downhill finish to the town centre where cheering crowds are waiting to great you.
The course can be described as challenging as the first couple of miles are generally uphill towards Gillamoor, although you can never describe it as steep. Here you meet you first water station before a nice flat section over to Fadmoor where we have our on-course first aide station. Here runners take a more southward direction and start to feel the benefit of a gentle downhill towards Hagg Farm. Our second water station greets competitors before a little dip and a cheeky final hill before you start your descent back into the town. Some people call this course hilly, with the organisers preferring to use the word undulating.
Kim Reeve finished 2nd in her age category in a time of 45.25. Full results can be found here
