Meet the 7 Deserts Runner


Mina Guli is the founder and CEO of Thirst, an educational charity that teaches future leaders about water conservation. Mina is herself a global leader, an entrepreneur and adventurer, passionate and committed to making a difference in the world.

In her early years she was not athletic and did not play much sport. But after breaking her back in 1992, doctors told her that she wouldn't run again. Determined not to allow anyone else to define her limits, Mina has now completed 6 Ironman Triathlons, and 250km self­supported runs across Madagascar and the Sahara Desert in 2014 and 2013 respectively.

Follow her amazing story here as she explores water scarcity in Spain, Jordan, Antarctica, Australia, South Africa, Chile and North America.
