Lucy Bartholomew is no stranger to running long distances. But even in the world of ultras, Australia’s Larapinta Trail is no joke.
Serene, expansive, arid, rugged — all words that can describe the allure of Australia’s Larapinta trail in the northern territory. Or, as some describe it, a walking track with “spectacular bushwhacking.”
In 2021, filmmaker Bryan Hynes documented Lucy Bartholomew as she ran the 231km (140-mile) Larapinta Trail in the Northern Territory Australia. The film showcases what it’s like to plan and undertake a run like this one, but also highlights “some of the most beautiful landscapes of central Australia.”
