Lucas Updike



Determined to return to the sport, he transferred to Eastern Oregon University for the 2011 cross country season. At EOU, Lucas was introduced to the world of track and field. He ran several indoor and outdoor events and then chose to focus on his strongest event, the 3000 meter steeplechase. In 2013, he earned his BA in Liberal Studies focusing on Health and Anthropology/Sociology.

Lucas is looking forward to the challenge of training and competing at the national level with Team Run Eugene. He is excited to further the team’s goals of community engagement and promoting a healthy lifestyle for all ages.
