Jacqui Bell, a 25-year-old ultra runner from Brisbane, Australia has achieved an incredible amount already despite her youth! In 2020, Jacqui became the youngest person to run a multi-stage ultra on every continent in the world. Jacqui placed 1st in the Iceland 250k, 2nd in the Grand Canyon 273k and 3rd in the New Zealand 323km Alps 2 Ocean event.
We chatted about her plans for the future, her most recent 100 mile deput (and win) in hometown Brisbane, and why she loves multi-stage racing in the interview below.
