Sonia Macías is an ultra-distance sportswoman. She has became La Princesa del Desierto (the Princess of the Desert) to face a unique challenge: running 1,000 kilometers in 20 days at the Namid desert as a self-improvement expedition and a solidarity action.
Sonia was born in Sevilla (Spain) and now she is a real entrepreneur in the sport industry. She is in charge of a Fitness and Physiotherapy Center and she also has a shop online of sport equipment. The last few years she has been combining her working life with her big passion: long-distance running.
Since 2012 Sonia has run hard mountain races, duathlon and adventure raids. One of the most important races has been the Marathon des Sables, the most extreme race that she was able to finish at the Sahara Desert.
She also works as a coach and personal trainer.
“I define myself as an ‘ultra-distance of life’ because every day I try to live as if it was the last race I am running” – says Sonia.
And this is the reason why she has arranged her own adventure.
