About the event
Black Mountain is a quaint village with 40 or so shops and a dozen restaurants. Some of our favorite stops are the Town Hardware & General Store, Black Mountain Iron Works, Take a Hike Outfitters, Seven Sisters Gallery, and the sprawling Tyson Furniture Company (covers a whole block). Take a break at Dripolator Coffeehouse. The Black Mountain Center for the Arts is a community arts facility in the beautifully renovated Old City Hall and houses monthly exhibits in the gallery along with programs in music, visual and performing arts. This is home of the Black Mountain Marathon.
Race founders Wendell Begley of Black Mountain Savings and Trent Thomas from Black Dome Mountain Sports saw a need for this kind of event for both the elite athlete and the weekend warrior. Their goal was to design a race that was attainable physically while offering the opportunity to test oneself against the often-uncooperative forces of nature!
