Chris, 58 & Adrienne, 59
Farmer & Firie, South Australia
After 30 years together, South Australian couple Chris and Adrienne haven’t faced an obstacle they couldn’t overcome. In fact, firefighter Adrienne charges full-steam towards obstacle courses like The Mud Run, True Grit and Tough Mudder. As the first female fire fighter in South Australia, Adrienne has been honoured with an Order of Australia Medal for her services to the community, charity and women’s affairs. When Adrienne isn’t tangling with flames, she’s helping Chris run their alpaca farm on Mount Compass.
Life as an international shearer and alpaca judge has seen Chris travel to South America, Asia and Europe, all with Adrienne by his side. A self-described family man, Chris is to receive an Australian Bravery Medal for his part in saving his 15-year-old daughter from a great white shark attack.
Get to know Chris
What’s the worst part of travelling with your teammate? There isn’t a worst part. We have been travelling life’s highway for 30 years together. But I know she will mention my snoring has no escape.
What do you think will be your biggest advantage or strength in the race? I have had a great life with many experiences and achieved many things from being an Aussie rules footballer to shearing alpacas all around the world. I think my life experiences will give me a great advantage.

What scares you most about traveling? Serious illness or injury without adequate medical support. And terrorism and war in general.
What excites you most about traveling? The opportunity for exploring places that are different and unique to what I have at home. Taking everything in, so you can truly experience the beauty of the location, the people and the culture.
