5 Minutes With Ultra Trail Runner Lucy Bartholomew
Where are you at the moment and for what race?
I am currently in the north island of New Zealand having just raced in the Tarawera 62km event. Soon I will travel to the south island to race next weekend in the Shotover moonlight marathon and I will stay there for 3 weeks and again race at the beginning of March in the Motatapu ultra.
What are you most looking forward to for this trail course?
The race I just did I was really looking forward to returning to this race as the last I was there the course was changed and shortened due to a Cyclone. It was funny to return this weekend with again a big cloud of rain but we ran the full course and I really embraced and enjoyed the challenge of the muddy, slippery trails! Next weekend I am returning to the Shotover Moonlight Marathon for the 3rd year and I am really looking forward to seeing how my body will feel after the Tarawera and doing a gnarly mountain marathon!
Good Luck Lucy! Our community is so proud of you!
