Challenging the Status Quo with Joe Gray


2 votes so far


Joe Gray is an accomplished trail, mountain and snowshoe runner. He was the first Black athlete to make the Team USA World Mountain Running Team and the first Black American to win the U.S.A. National Mountain Running Championships, which he has now done 18 times. But even with all this success, Joe is frustrated by the lack of diversity not only in pro running, but also in media coverage and sponsorship of the sport. He’s observed young Black athletes not pursuing the sports they love because they don’t see themselves represented, so he’s doing something about it with his organization, Project Inspire Diversity.
