Joseph Gray began his professional running career shortly after graduating from Oklahoma State University with Bachelors and Masters Degrees. He has since accumulated nine USATF National titles across all distinctions of distance running, including mountain running, trail, ultra, road racing, track and field and cross country. His level of success has been directly related to his ability to tackle any terrain and compete with the best athletes. After years of experience competing Internationally, Gray hopes to continue his success in new countries year after year with the ultimate goal of earning more medals for Team USA at World Championships in addition to expanding his horizons as an ambassador for the sport as a champion of anti-doping through coaching and advocating to younger athletes the importance of clean sport and the future of athletics. Beyond merely competing internationally with the best of the best, Gray really appreciates the idea of community that running brings.
 “Meeting athletes from other countries, trying their food, speaking their language and sharing our love for the sport of running is a priceless venture”.
