Discussion of World’s Toughest Race Eco Challenge Fiji 2019 continues with the Eco Challenge Spirit Award winners, Travis Macy and his father Mark Macy of Team Endure. They join Zack Hacker and Jonny Fairplay to recount how Mark got into adventure racing 9 Eco Challenges ago, what it was like racing as a father/son duo, and how Mark’s diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s impacted their performance.
If you’ve seen them on World’s Toughest Race, you know how genuine the energy that the Macys bring is, and you don’t want to miss this look behind the scenes of their journey on the Amazon Prime series. Spoiler: Jonny and Zack managed to not tear up during the recording…but only barely!
