Adam Marcinowicz has taken over ownership of Tri-Adventure during 2015, so let’s hear a little more about the man behind the adventure…
“I’ve taken on Tri-Adventure to carry on enjoying what I do and to grow the sport that gave me a sense of Adventure. I want to introduce it to others and use my experience from the racing I’ve done to create some great and impressive Adventure Events in the future. I feel passionate about creating a community of Adventurers who enjoy coming to Tri-Adventure Events. We welcome beginners to the sport and give them the support and training they need through our Academy, to ensure they get the bug and come back time and time again. I see myself as a mentor to our community and will personally be on hand to offer advice and support whenever needed. My dream is for Tri-Adventure to be irresistible, inspirational and admired for being top in class for its expertise and event delivery.”
Whether you’re male or female, experienced or a beginner, our events cater for everyone, so come and try our adventure!

Adam has many achievements; most recently, he finished 82nd in the Marathon Des Sables – 6 marathons run over 6 days across the Sahara Desert. He was also 6th Solo in the 2011 Open Adventure Coast to Coast Adventure Race, and he was in the 1st British team to finish at the 2008 Portuguese 100h Expedition Adventure Race. Adam’s next challenge is to finish a marathon in under three hours; recently, he achieved 3h 01m 07s, so the goal is within reach.
During his adventures, Adam has become qualified in many sporting disciplines including: Climbing, Orienteering, Kayaking, Powerboat, Quadcopter, Winter Skills, GPS, Canoeing and Mountain Biking, to name a few.
