Reid finished 8th overall at the event, which is a significant improvement on her previous best finish of 17th.
“I was running with Jodie and Moffy and I just thought how am I staying here? I felt good and saw I got a wee bit of a gap on Jodie, so I just pushed more and more to see if I could get a medal.
“I’m totally delighted with second place… it’s amazing.
“I’ve been consistent all year but that result was just the icing on the cake.”
