We here at iRunFar.com have been out on the trails busily searching for new stories… that is when we haven’t been moving iRunFar headquarters clear across the country. While we regret that this has resulted in one or two fewer stories of late, we would like to assure you that the brief slow down in posting frequency will be well worth it. In just the past week, we’ve pounded dirt in 5 states, including scouting the hard-as-they-come Pocatello 50 mile course in Idaho and completing a double crossing of the Grand Canyon just yesterday.

Anyway, today we wanted to share a sweet trail running video recently produced by Matt Hart, a Montrail/nuun/backcountry.com athlete. We thought folks were exaggerating when they said it gave them goosebumps… until we experienced them, too. Check it out for yourself below. You won’t be disappointed.

So how’d you like Matt’s video? See any familiar places or faces? Would you like to see more video content on iRunFar? Got any favorite videos you’d like to share?
