Ultra Runner and elite endurance athlete... meet Jacqui Bell!

Jacqui is an ultra runner with an already impressive resume at the age of 27!

She is the youngest person to have run an Ultra Marathon on all 7 continents. She has competed in some amazing places, such as the Atacama Desert in Chile as well as in the Grand Canyon in the USA.

Bulk Nutrients Ambassador Jacquia Bell running through the bush

Hi, my name is Jacqui Bell!

I am 27 years of age from Brisbane, Qld. I am an ultra runner, and honestly, the further the better!

I took up ultra running when I was about 20 years of age for a bit of fun and then it wasn't until later on that I started setting myself some more challenging goals. In 2019 I became The Youngest Person in History to run an Ultra Marathon on all 7 continents, these were all multi stage ultras which were 250km's or more over 5-7 days, self supported except for a tent and water.

You can now find me competing in 100km and 100 mile races alongside these week long undertakings. My first real taste test of multi stage racing was at 22, when I set myself the goal of becoming The Youngest Female in the World to complete Racing the Planets 4 Desert Grand Slam... clearly I am quite goal orientated. To name a few of the places I have competed in - Namibia Desert in Africa, Atacama Desert in Chile, Antarctica, Iceland and The Grand Canyon.

Taking on challenges that seem somewhat impossible teaches me that anything is possible and the word "can't" is just a barrier we put up which stops us from doing things.

Alongside the 7 continents challenge I was able to overhaul my own mental health and raised over $25,000 for the Mental Health Charity The White Cloud Foundation. I am an ambassador for Brooks Runners, Bulk Nutrients and Adrenaline Experiences. Alongside running, I am a fitness trainer, public speaker and host my own Retreat called Run Escapes Aus in Noosa which is held 3 times a year!

Taking my passion for adventures, experiences and challenges and being able to share them is really fulfilling. I look forward to sharing my running training, tricks, tips, do's and don'ts with you!

Jacqui's Recommended Products

Bulk Nutrients' Protein Matrix+ exceptionally creamy and easily digested high quality protein blend

Protein Matrix+

Why I love it: After a big session in the gym or running, I am sometimes time poor and need to make sure I have a recovery protein shake within 30 minutes of training, otherwise I will have muscle break down and I will really suffer 1-2 days later.

How I use it: Water + dash of milk, sometimes a 1/3 of a banana, and if I am feeling a little wild even a small scoop of peanut butter! I add lots of ice and put it in a mixer! CREAMY and DELISH!

Bulk Nutrients' Electrolyte Plus is a tasty drink designed to improve hydration by replenishing glycogen and electrolytes

Electrolyte Plus

Why I love it: I use this when I am out on my long runs! I sweat a lot and need to make sure I am topping up my glycogen out there. If I don't replace what I am losing I will crash hard - especially if it is a 100km run!

How I use it: With water!

Bulk Nutrients' Quick Protein Pancakes Offered in single serve sachets an easy way to cook up some delicious high protein pancakes

Quick Protein Pancakes

Why I love it: They are so tasty! I really rate these as a healthy way to have that sweet breakfast and they also are a hit of protein which is a win win!

How I use it: I follow the instructions on the Pancakes and just add some water. I cook them up and add a scoop of natural Greek yoghurt and maple syrup!

Bulk Nutrients' Whey Protein Isolate WPI is ultra high in protein and is sourced from grass fed cows

Whey Protein Isolate

Why I love it: It goes down a treat and it is a great source of protein for me post session! It helps me build lean muscle and recover quickly!

How I use it: I have it straight into a shaker with water after a session. If I am at home or have the ability to add some ice and a dash of milk, I will!

Jacqui's approach to nutrition

I am all about moderation and being in tune with what makes you feel your best and perform at your best. I try to eat clean food, I prefer cooking over eating out unless it is for a social occasion, but I just love cooking and knowing exactly what is going into my preparation and the meal.

I eat 3 meals a day - Breaky, Lunch, Dinner and try to avoid snacking, but I usually get the munchies in the afternoon slump. You will find me with a rice thin and peanut butter, hummus on a cracker/ carrot or some vege chips, I am easy going and eat a bit of it all! Days when I am hungrier I eat more, days that I am not very hungry I eat a little less!

Average Daily Calorie Intake: 2000

Are there Foods you Avoid? I have a sweet tooth and these foods also don't make me feel good! Chocolate and Ice cream is my weakness for sure, I allow myself to have it occasionally 😊

Your go-to Cheat Meal? I don't really have a cheat meal, but I enjoy going out for a nice Italian dinner or a cheeky McDonalds breaky burger with a hash brown can cure any late night!

Bulk Nutrients Ambassador Jacquia Bell working out

Weekly Workout Plan

I use training peaks and my coach lays out all of my programming for me!

I run anywhere from 50-140km's per week, strength sessions in the gym x2, ride outdoors 50km, x1-2 spin classes, x1-2 yoga and I absolutely love infrared Sauna's and try to do lots of recovery with these, and ice/hot bath contrast treatment!

For me it is all about keeping my runs easy, run long and run far and then in the tempo/ speed sessions I go fast and short. This is key for ultra runners. Keeping the long runs slow and the short runs fast!

A day might be like:

Monday

  • AM - 90 minute easy run @ 5:15-5:45 pace (approx 15-17k)
  • Midday - 45 minute infrared sauna and stretch
  • PM - 60 min strength session

Tuesday

  • AM - 60 min indoor bike spin class
  • PM - 60 min speed session on treadmill or at the track - 30 min recovery of stretch, trigger, foam roll

Wednesday

  • AM - 15km hilly trail run @ easy run pace 5:30-5:55
  • PM - 15km road run with race pace

Thursday
