Meredith Quinlan and Jess Baker are two of Australia’s best ultramarathon runners with a string of victories and records to their name.

In recent years, they have begun exploring what lies beyond organised races.

In 2018, their love of travel and running took them to Iceland where they ran the length of Iceland - from the northern tip to the southern tip - and set a Fastest Known Time (FKT) in the process.

The ‘Iceland Traverse’ was a self-supported journey of around 580km which took them 7 days and 13 hours to complete.

In this (laughter-filled) conversation, we discuss:

- how they each discovered running,

- whether there was any sense of rivalry between them,

- why Meredith doesn’t fear failure,

- Jess’ experience with the Imposter Complex and why she says it can be helpful at times,

- where the idea to traverse Iceland came from,

- how Iceland’s rich history of strong women inspired them, and

- the logistics involved in a self-supported crossing of Iceland, which included being powered by chocolate biscuits and slabs of chocolate for a 100km stretch and a 300km section where there were no resupply options,
