22–23 Mar 2025 278 days to go! #GetOutside

Carol Cheng

I am a bit of a daredevil and love trying out new and exciting sports – this year alone, I have tried my hand at kitesurfing, wakeboarding and white water kayaking. I have also ran in two full marathons in London and Hong Kong (with my first marathon being without any prior training), abseiled down Broadgate Tower (which is one of the tallest buildings in London and which also featured in James Bond’s ‘Skyfall’), and galloped across the plains of Mongolia on horse-back.
I also love spending time outdoors, whether it’s going for a trail run in the Epping Forest, or meandering along the coastline in Pembrokeshire, Wales, whilst keeping an eye out for feeding porpoises. At the end of the day, there’s nothing better on a chilly evening than making my way into my cosy tent and spending the night underneath the stars.
