Congrats Kate!! Kate is fast at both long and short distances, trail and road. This weekend she ran the SB She is Beautiful 10k and crushed it. Kate finished third! A beautiful course for a road 10k. Starting at East Beach the course winds past the bird refuge, around the Santa Barbara Cemetery, along Butterfly beach, and into Monecito before turning around and running back the same way. Plenty of views of the Pacific Ocean.
She is Beautiful is a fundraiser for Girls Incorporated of the Greater Santa Barbara area. According to the organization, it’s mission is “to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.” What a great cause for our SB Mountain racing ladies to support! Other fund-raising partners include Every Mother Counts, the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, and Girls Rock Santa Barbara. She is Beautiful is an all womens race and encourages runners to wear their “sassiest (and pinkest) outfit.” Congrats on a great race Kate!!
Kate Elliott: 40:51, 3rd overall
