Joe Grant

Joe Grant is an endurance athlete living in Gold Hill, Colorado. Born in the UK, Joe grew up in France and began running in his late teens as a way to explore wild places under his own power. He has now been running ultras for over a decade, and has a diverse and extensive resume competing in trail and mountain running events around the world in places such as Colorado, the Alps, Mexico, Alaska, and Japan.
In the summer of 2016, Joe took on his biggest project to date, the Tour de Fourteeners, a self-powered and self-supported link-up of all of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks by bike and on foot. Joe started and finished at his home in Gold Hill, Colorado riding 1,100 miles between peaks and running/hiking another 400 miles to scale a total of 57 summits over the course of a month.
Joe is also a writer, photographer and coach and documents his adventures on his website www.alpine-works.com.
