Marshall Ulrich is an endurance athlete and ultrarunning legend with over 130 ultra finishes. He recently crossed Death Valley for the 30th time on foot in February when he set out to raise money in honor of his friend and teammate, Mark Macy. Macy is a long-time friend and recently competed on Amazon’s World's Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji with his son, Travis. Ulrich’s team, The Stray Dogs also competed alongside the Macy’s during the adventure race. Eco-Challenge Team Stray Dogs originally included both Ulrich and Macy until Macy was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2018.

Scotty talks to Ulrich about his recent Death Valley crossing to Mount Whitney ascent to the 14,508-foot summit which raised over $14,508 for the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of Mark Macy. They also discuss how Ulrich and Macy’s friendship formed around adventure racing in the early 90s, as well as Macy’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis and his resilience while battling the disease over the past three years.
