Joe Gray, one of America’s top trail runners for much of the past decade, decisively won the 12.6-mile Barr Trail Mountain Race along the lower flanks of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs, Colo., on July 17. In this video, shot by Mark Tatum of the trail running site MUTWild.com, Gray, a Merrell-sponsored athlete, flies down Barr Trail on the switchbacks just above No Name Creek. Gray, a 10-time U.S. champion with many top-10 international race finishes, won the Barr Trail Mountain Race in 1:30:0, running roughly 7:09/mile pace (which is quite fast for running downhill on singletrack trails). Tatum was shooting with a GoPro Hero Silver mounted to a Feiyu hand-held gimbal device.
