Zeana Haroun

Event Director

United States, Resident in Thailand

Zeana Haroun joined RacingThePlanet with a background in event coordination and a fondness for adventure. Born in Sierra Leone to an American mother and a 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 three-month internship with The U.S. State Department in Switzerland. Eleven years, four countries and countless adventures later, she still hasn't returned. Her experience in Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand; work 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. Since then, she has participated in many other races, marathons, half marathons, ultras and multi-stage races around the world including RacingThePlanet: Madagascar, the Atacama Crossing and the Namib Race, to name a few.  She enjoys pushing limits and seeing just how far the mind will let the body go.
