He is also a well-known and long-lived figure in the endurance sports world. Mace and his contemporaries pioneered ultra-running (defined as races of 50 kilometers to more than 100 miles) in the 1980s. In the 90s he did the same for adventure racing: grueling team events requiring everything from rope climbing to trail running, mountain biking, white-water rafting and even camel riding. One of a few athletes to participate in all eight Eco-Challenge adventure races, he is the only person to compete in this extreme adventure race after having been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. As best as can be ascertained, he is one of the few athletes to officially compete in any sanctioned ultra-distance event after having received such a diagnosis. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"\/pages\/mark-macy\"\u003eRead more\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/a\u003eabout\u003cspan\u003e Mace\u003c\/span\u003e.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatrick Regan, co-author\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cmeta charset=\"UTF-8\"\u003e\u003cmeta charset=\"UTF-8\"\u003e\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eCowriter \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003ePatrick Regan\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e is the author of biography, history, humor, lifestyle and children’s books, and he has collaborated with a long list of artists, athletes, humorists, and photographers.

A Mile at a Time

A Mile at a Time

A Father and Son's Inspiring Alzheimer's Journey of Love, Adventure, and Hope

Coming March 14, 2023. Pre-order today!

By: Travis and Mark "Mace" Macy with Patrick Regan

One last race together. 

“Travis and Mace have touched a generation of families around the world with their courage, resilience and kindness.”
Bear Grylls, star of Man vs. Wild and host of World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji

 “Watching Mark and Travis Macy compete together for Eco-Challenge Fijiwas a true inspiration. Travis’s selfless act of taking his father on what may be his last race is a story that anyone can relate to and what we need more of these days.”  
—Mark Burnett, chairman of MGM Worldwide Television Group; creator and producer of Survivor, The Apprentice, and World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji

In October 2018, Mark “Mace” Macy, sixty-four years old, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Mace had spent thirty years competing in Colorado and around the world in ultra-endurance competitions and is one of the few to have finished all eight Eco-Challenge events. Once diagnosed, Mace feared losing his  endurance, strength, and independence. 

Mace's son Travis, a fellow professional endurance athlete, also struggled with his father's diagnosis. In 2019, they decided to participate in the World's Toughest Race—a grueling seven-day 400-mile marathon of trekking, climbing, biking, and paddling through the jungle—for one final race together.

Weaving excerpts from Mace's passionate personal journals together with a first-person narrative by Travis, this timely and deeply moving father-son adventure sheds light on the hard truths of Alzheimer's while glimpsing the hope and love that can still be found together.
