A Special Journey for this Father-Son Team: Meet the Macys

For father-son Team Endure, it’s more about the journey than it is about winning. Mark Macy and his son Travis Macy weren’t initially planning on being on the same team. Mark has been racing most of his life and had even raced in Fiji before; Travis grew up watching his dad and when Mark was diagnosed with Alzheimers, they knew this would be a priceless trip together if they could complete this epic race. We talked with the duo about the pivot in plans and the importance of teamwork.
