Lucy first started doing Ultras at a young age, completing her first 100km race at just age 15. Since then, Lucy has accumulated an extensive resume of racing achievements. Most notably, becoming the World Junior Female Sky Running Champion in 2014, and not long after that, becoming the world Ultra Junior Trail Running Champion.
