Zeana Haroun joined the 4 Deserts Race Series in 2014 and has since been at more than fifteen 4 Deserts races on the management team as well having completed RacingThePlanet: Madagascar as a competitor.
Born in Sierra Leone to an American mother and Lebanese father, the adventures started early. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in International Development, and then went on to further her studies with a Masters in Public Health from the University of Liverpool.
She left the US in 2003 for a 3 month internship with the U.S. State Department in Switzerland. She has since lived in three countries and had countless adventures and still hasn't returned home. Her experience in Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong, working with the US and Australian governments and coordination of the growth of a start-up, high-level international school have tested and proven her abilities to manage and coordinate all different types of events.
Zeana has always enjoyed running and started pushing things a bit further with her first marathon in Singapore in 2008. Since then she has participated in many other marathons, half marathons, ultra and multi-stage races around the world and has supported fellow runners by officially pacing several races. She enjoys pushing limits and seeing just how far the mind will let the body go.
