Xing Ruling, who has been a TNF trail runner for 12 years, is a legend in China's trail running circle. Zhao Dan, under the influence of Sister Xing, participated in the TNF100 trail running competition for the first time in 2019 and fell in love with trail running ever since.
"I started running because my health was not good at the time, but I didn't admit defeat or my fate. I wanted to change through sports. I didn't expect that it would be nearly 20 years after running. Bu...t I will keep running until I can't run. You must face any setbacks bravely, and you will be able to succeed in the end." said Xing Ruling, who is 57 years old this year and is still organizing a training camp for sister Xing in Beijing.
Zhao Dan, who had been a volunteer in the hardest-hit areas during the epidemic, said: "After so much, I will cherish the present more now, and I want to explore plans that have not been implemented before. The execution is better than before. I hope to use outdoor sports. To change your image and physique, without fear of becoming a better version of yourself."
Because of their love of trail running, they became good friends, also their body and mind became stronger. They hope to help those around them through their own practice and pass on their fearless spirit of exploration to the next generation.
