About us


Adventure Junkie was started by two Russian adventure racers after they permanently moved to Melbourne. 

Maria and Serge have been adventure racing throughout the World for much of the last 6 years, competing in short sprints as well as monster expedition-length events lasting several days. They also compete in other sports including road marathons and triathlons. But their sporting background is cross-country skiing, where each of them have over 20 years experience.   

In their sporting careers, they have participated in races from France, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Sweden, China, South Africa, Finland, Portugal, and Estonia.

Their aim is to bring fresh ideas about adventure racing to Australia, and Victoria in particular, to run races which will be challenging and interesting for both experienced and novice athletes.

Maria has been working in event management area for last 5 years organising corporate events and sporting competitions in Moscow and in some European countries. These corporate projects were often delivered to top management teams and achieving high standards. One of her races, organised as an Arena Adventure race in Moscow was named as the best adventure race of the Central region of Russia. A similar event of complicated logistics covering 3 days of expedition-length racing was held in Tahko, Finland. 

Serge has a strong IT background with many years of management experience. From time to time, he has taken part in corporate events organisation and gathered valuable experience in event management. 

Their great passion for adventure racing and event management guided Serge and Maria towards the idea of setting up Adventure Junkie.com.au. With a few few successful events already under their belt, and a growing reputation for bring new ideas and fun to the sport, exciting times lie ahead.
