Nestled in the heart of Black Mountain North Carolina, Vertical Runner serves as base camp to the endless adventures available in Western North Carolina. From the Blue Ridge Mountains, Pisgah National Forest, to our small Montreat trail system, our staff can knowledgeably point you in the right direction. We take pride on fitting you to the right pair of shoes for the right type occasion. Community is our focus and we strive to grow it everyday with our events, shop, and everyday character. Join our community and we can grow together!

Every Wednesday at 6 pm we meet at the shop and run around the little Town of Black Mountain, followed by a trip to Lookout Brewing for some calorie replenishment. All paces are represented through out the year so you will never feel intimidated to participate. The run consists anywhere from 2-5 miles based on your skill level. Come join us for a social gathering through our wonderful little town!
