Eat dinner like a UTMB star tonight

Australian ultrarunner Lucy Bartholomew is known for her resilient and upbeat attitude, beautiful social media posts and passion for nourishing fuel. Bartholomew ran to 10th place at this year’s UTMB (170K) race and shared her race experience online: “a lot of walking, a little jogging, constant problem solving, unconditional buffet and a brief lesson in French.”

Bartholomew has a passion for creating healthy food to fuel her body to her fast finishes. She published a downloadable cookbook, Sustain, in 2022 and often shares what food carried her through her training and racing on Instagram. These rice paper rolls are simple to put together and easily adaptable to different preferences–”super fun for everyone in the family to do together and make as they want,” says Bartholomew.
