Nahila Hernández

Mexico City / Mexico

Nahila was born in Kazakhstan but raised since she was a little kid in Mexico (she is now naturalized Mexican). She is well known Mexican ultramarathonist, probably the most recognized in Latin America. She is a mother, entrepreneur, and outstanding motivational speaker. She was the first Ibero-American woman to successfully finish the “Racing the Planet” series that consists of running the four most extreme deserts on the planet – The Sahara (Egypt), the Atacama (Chile), the Gobi March (China), and the Last Desert (Antarctica). She was the first Mexican to finish the Badwater ultramarathon, considered by National Geographic “the hardest race in the world.”

“Only who challenges himself to the limit, will know how far he can go.” – Nahila Hernández
