Woman Setting Out to Run 6 Rivers on 6 Continents in 6 Weeks

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A woman who runs long distances to raise awareness about water issues plans six runs along six rivers in six weeks on separate continents, beginning from Las Vegas to the Colorado River.

Mina Guli is due to mark World Water Day with a start Wednesday from the Springs Preserve. That’s the site of the original Las Vegas water source.

Her goal is to raise awareness about a United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, to ensure access to water and sanitation for everyone.

Guli also plans runs at the Amazon River in South America, the Murray-Darling Basin in Australia, the Yangtze in Asia, the Nile in Africa and the Thames in England.

A spokesman says Guli plans to log a little more than 1,000 miles in 40 days.

Last year, she ran seven deserts on seven continents.
