Episode 88: Lucy Bartholomew – Ultra Trail Australia Champion

Listen in as I sit down with Lucy Bartholomew in a fun and refreshing episode of The Physical Performance Show. At 21 years old Lucy’s accomplishments in trail running are inspiring including her recent wins in the Ultra Trail Australia Championships (100km) race and Ultra Trail Cape Town in South Africa. Lucy shares around how she started trail running with her dad, her first trail run and the backlash she received for competing in a 100km race at the tender age of 16, how running became more important then school, her breakthrough race, funny training moments, her worst injuries and what she has learnt from the spot. Lucy has an infectious passion for trail running which you can hear throughout the interview that will make you want to explore the trail running world.
