Reeth 10K Trail Race

25/04/2016

Les Hill competed in the Reeth 10K Trail Race and sent in this report.

Took part in the Reeth 10K Trail Race on Sunday, 24th April, and finished second in a time of 41.52 This 10K is a new event and was run at the same time as the longer standing 20K. Both start at the same time and split after a steep climb of around a mile in length and about two miles into the race. So when the five runners in front of me all turned right for the 20K, while I took a left turn, I found myself in the lead of the 10K with someone snapping at my heels. I held him at bay until the steep technical descents inside the last mile and dropped behind him and had to settle for the runner up spot with forty others behind me. I knew by my time that it was not a full 10k with such a steep climb in the route. Those who were wearing Garmins confirmed this as it showed up as 5.6 miles. But I am still delighted with the time and the result.
