print articleLucy Bartholomew


Elite 22-year-old Australian trail runner Lucy Bartholomew has been dreaming about competing in the legendary 100-mile Western States Endurance Run since she was 15. Now she has a place on the start line for the first time. We caught up with her after a training run to ask about her preparations and plans for the summer.

What's been happening?

I have been in Auburn, California the last four weeks preparing for the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run (WS). I came early to see what the trail holds, and to get used to temperature and altitude. Iíve adjusted well. I really eased into, and then moved to run in the hottest part of the day. Itís about 35 degrees celcius, and hotter still in the canyons. Iíve been lucky that over the last few years Iíve chased the sun, and havenít had a winter. Iím feeling good!


Whatís been new for you there?

The WS trail is super unique because of its downhill nature. Iíve never run a trail with so much grinding downhill. It sounds good, but after a while youíre searching for a hill. The quads feel it!


Lucy is ready for the Western States!


Western States is quite special for you, right?

Absolutely, because Iíve wanted to run it forever since I was 15. It was the first race I ever heard of, and Iíve been trying to get to the start line for three years. My aim for the race is to give my best; itís an honor just having a bib. To complete my first 100 miles is a big thing Ė itís a really long way. The people I get to stand on a start line with are amazing. I was their fangirl when I was a teenager. Now they are giving me advice, which says a lot about the camaraderie in our sport.


What's in your diary this summer and what's the main focus?

WS is the main focus. Iíve left the back half of the year open. WS is my first 100-mile event, and Iím not sure how I will feel physically, mentally, emotionally after it. Iíll play it by ear. I have respect for what WS will take from me. Iím heading to the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc in France, just to be there. Iíll spend some time traveling in Europe.


What are you most excited about?

Iím excited to head to the Sky Running World Championships in Scotland at the start of September. Iíll be there as a supporter or a competitor Ė weíll see. Itís my first time visiting Scotland. It would be nice if there was sunshine on race day! But I think Iím dreaming.


"Iím living a simple life: run, eat, sleep, yoga, repeat," says Lucy Bartholomew


Favorite post-training meal at the moment?

I am plant-based, vegan. I use that to my advantage Ė I get to eat a lot!  The foods I choose are plants and fruits so the quantity I have to eat is quite big and that pleases me. I love making green smoothies, or commonly known as ďShrek PooĒ Ė lots of green vegetables blended with frozen bananas, and Amazonia vegan protein powder. It has a thick consistency. I top it with nuts and fruit. Delicious!


Anything else inspiring you at the moment?

I practice yoga, more for the mental benefits than the physical. When I run, because Iím so efficient, I drift off and think about other things. With yoga, I fully concentrate and listen to my body. Itís really intuitive. Iím living a simple life: run, eat, sleep, yoga, repeat. To be honest, Iím pretty happy with it.


VIDEO: Follow along Lucy for a day as she prepares for the Western States Endurance Run!
