When she listens to her inner voice,
curiosity leads her to new places

When she pushes herself higher,
courage unlocks hidden depths

When she gives more to those around her,
she gets stronger in return

When she sees for herself,
she gets a new perspective on life

When she takes any small step out of her
comfort zone, she discovers
a different self

SEE FOR YOURSELF
NEVER STOP EXPLORING

當她聆聽自己的心聲,
好奇心驅使她去到新的地方

當她讓自己爬得更高的時候,
勇氣解鎖了她的潛能

當她施予給別人更多幫助的時候,
換來的是更強大的心

當她親歷其境,
她對生活有了新的看法

當她從舒適地帶邁出任何小步時,
她發現了不同的自我

由我發現
探索永不停止

XING RULING, ZHAODANㅣFEARLESS

Xing Ruling, considered as one of the legends in the trail running community in China and has been a TNF trail running athlete for over 12 years. Zhao Dan, influenced by Xing, took her first TNF 100 race in 2019. Since then she has become a big fan and advocate of trail running.

“My health was not in a good condition when I was younger therefore I did not run. I didn’t accept this was my fate so I was determined to make a change through sports. And now I have been running for nearly 20 years ! No matter what kind of setbacks I encounter, I have to face them with courage and in the end I will succeed”, said Xing Ruling with confidence aged 57.

Zhao Dan, who worked as a volunteer in one of the most critical areas during Covid-19 pandemic, said: “I’ve been through a lot in the past months, which leads me to cherish every moment. Nowadays I take action to kick start the plans that I once made and have not yet executed. My goal is to be a better self with no fear and a stronger body through outdoor sports.”

Through their shared love of trail running both Xing Ruling and Zhao Dan would like to pass on the fearless spirit of exploration to the next generation.

邢如伶,趙丹ㅣ無畏

邢如伶,成為TNF越野跑運動員12年,是中國越野跑圈的傳奇人物。趙丹,受到邢姐的影響,2019年第一次參加TNF100越野跑比賽,從此愛上越野跑。

“剛開始跑步是因為當時身體不好,但是我不認輸,不認命,我想通過運動來改變,沒想到一跑就是近20年,但是我會一直跑,跑到跑不動。因為不管遇到什麼樣的挫折,都要去勇敢地面對,最後一定能夠取得成功。”今年已經57歲,還在北京組織邢姐訓練營的邢如伶說。

曾在疫情期間到重災區當義工的趙丹說:“經歷了那麼多,我現在會更珍惜當下,也更想去探索以前沒有落實行動的計劃,執行力比以前好。我希望通過戶外運動來改變自己的形象、體魄,無懼成為一個更好的自己。”

因為對越野跑的熱愛,讓她們成為好朋友,同樣也因為戶外運動鍛煉,讓她們的身心變得更強大。她們希望透過自己的身體力行,幫助身邊的人,把無畏的探索精神傳承給下一代。

SIMONE LIUㅣSTRENGTH

Simone Liu, aka “Salmon”, a professional The North Face athlete. She admires the way salmon fish migrate from the ocean and make the arduous swim up stream. “This is just like climbing – from the bottom, all the way to the top and that’s how I picked my nickname”, she said.

Every time Simone explores rock climbing, she always experiences something unexpected. “Some of them were dangerous and scary at the time. Yet afterwards, I saw these challenges as valuable experiences. They showed me to never stop giving up”. She said

She realized besides the tough training, climbing provides a big release of stress. She explained, “To me climbing is a release of my inner mental power, it allows me to focus. With climbing you have to remove distractions and focus only what's only in front, nothing else.”

“My next goal is to climb longer and harder routes, to constantly challenge myself. I hope my story can inspire other female rock-climbing enthusiasts can be brave to take on new challenges. You will NOT be surprised when you accomplish them.” Simone said.

劉贇卿ㅣ力量

劉贇卿,外號三文魚,因為很欣賞三文魚逆流而上的精神,就跟攀岩運動是一樣,從下而上,所以取了這個名字,成為TNF全球簽約攀岩運動員2年半。

每一次的攀岩探索,她都會經歷一些意想不到的事。有一些是有危險的,在事後自己感到很害怕的,但卻因為能積累不同經驗而從未放棄。

在艱苦訓練的背後,在每一次攀岩的過程,對她來說也是一種力量的釋放:“運動對我來說是一種力量的釋放,每當我爬到一個難點,我要專注於怎樣去征服它。我的目的不是要去釋放自己的心情,而是去釋放自己的這種能量。”

“我的下一個目標是去爬更長更難的線路,不斷挑戰自我,超越現在的我,也希望更多的女性攀岩愛好者,能有自己的目標,專注並且勇於挑戰這個目標。”三文魚說。

COCOMIㅣCURIOSITY

Cocomi was born under the spotlight and is now a fashion model, who is exploring her passion of photography and snowboarding.

As any 19-year-old girl, Cocomi is curious about everything. “I am open especially to everything right now when it comes to photography”; “I am still developing my photographic style and want to challenge myself by trying new things, then sharing about my experience”, said Cocomi.

Though she usually stays behind the camera, this time she took the challenge and stepped in front of the camera. “Its important to be open to discover new perspectives, to determine your own path”

Cocomi’s curiosity drives her to look into the unknown. “To me, there are tons of things that I have to learn and experience and I am determined to put the extra effort to find out”.

Next time we hope that we will see from behind the camera what Cocomi loves about the outdoor. “Photography is a beautiful way to capture nature".

心美ㅣ好奇心

Cocomi, 出生在聚光燈下,目前是一位時尚模特,平時喜歡攝影和滑雪。

19歲,剛踏進時尚圈的她,對於一切充滿好奇。“幾乎所有事情都能讓我感到好奇。我想要挑戰自己去做更多的嘗試,特別是攝影;我也喜歡和大家分享自己的發現。”

平時都是在鏡頭背後的她,這次接受 The North Face的挑戰,嘗試走到鏡頭前,對於年輕的Cocomi 而言, 尋找新的的視角,找到屬於自己的道路,非常重要。

很多人看來贏在起跑線的她,受好奇心的驅使,不斷接受各種挑戰。“對我而言,需要學習的事情,需要去付出努力的事情還有很多很多。”

我們也希望下次可以看到Cocomi鏡頭下的戶外世界。“攝影是捕捉自然瞬間的美麗途徑。”

ZIJUN HANㅣDISRUPT

Han Zijun is a climber and the co-founder of the Unlimited Her Non-profit Organization.

She used to live a typical 9 to 5 office life. One day she felt a need to change her way of living, she took the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, with her friends. She found that "when the blizzards came, the winds did not blow on your face less fiercely just because you are a lady."

As one of the few female climbers who has climbed the south and north slope of Mount Everest at the same time, she felt "while standing at the top of Mount Everest, I witnessed the highest and most spectacular sunrise in the world. Two years of hard training was totally worth it."

However, Zijun Han believes that being disruptive is not just about achievement, but about breaking the mould. "It is not necessary to climb an 8000m high mountain to explore.

As long as you try something you have never done before with courage and walk out of your comfort zone, this is exploration."

韓子君ㅣ顛覆

韓子君是一位攀登者,也是非盈利戶外探索組織“她無限公益基金”的聯合發起人。

本來過着朝九晚五辦公室生活的她,為了要“做一件從來沒有做過的事情,為了改變生活狀況”,和她的同伴一起挑戰了非洲最高峰乞力馬扎羅。她發現“在暴風雪來臨的時候,它不會因為你是一個女性是一個女孩子,暴風雪吹到你臉上的時候就會更加溫柔。

” 而作為少有同時登上過珠穆朗瑪峰頂南坡和北坡的女性攀登者,她的感想是“站在珠穆朗瑪峰頂,首先我是發現了世界上最高最壯觀的日出。然後我發現,差不多兩年的艱苦訓練,是值得的。

” 但韓子君相信顛覆並不單指成就,而在於破圈,“並不一定去爬一座八千米的高山就是探索,只要你勇敢的去嘗試以前你從來沒有做過的事情,走出你的舒適圈,這就是探索。”

LUO YANGㅣRESILIANCE

Luo Yang is a renowned photographer. She has spent almost 10 years to complete her series of work called "Girls”. Her portraits depict an emerging Chinese youth culture that defies imposed expectations and stereotypes - GIRLS are resilient, independent and self-confident.

It was for this reason she was chosen as one of the photographers for The North Face women’s campaign. “Photography is a way of exploration, a bridge to understand the world, and an outlet for self-expression”, she said.

Luo Yang’s photography series which reflects her passion for life and her relentless attitude to explore a unique vision for women.

During this special time in the world she continues to stay resilient and hopes that she will explore more in the next 10 years - inspired by possibilities.

羅洋ㅣ恢復

羅洋是一位知名攝影師。她用了近10年的時間來完成《女孩們》攝影系列作品。在羅洋的鏡頭下,演繹現代年輕人文化,表現了女孩們的堅韌,獨立和自信。

因為這個原因,The North Face 邀請羅洋參與本次女性市場活動的部分拍攝工作。“攝影對我來說是一種探索的方式,是一個橋樑去了解外界,也是表達自己的一個出口”, 羅洋告訴我們。

對羅洋來說,用十年的時間來完成的已經不止是一部作品,更是一種成長,一份堅韌的態度,包含着對生活的熱情,對攝影的堅持,對未知的憧憬。

同樣,她想要帶着這份堅韌的態度去探索下一個十年,不管是從生活上還是從創作上,探索更多未知,啟發無限可能。
