Black Mountain Running Co.
It's amazing what can happen when dreams meet reality. I thought of the idea to open BMRCo. on a lazy marathon training run in the Spring of 2011. After having taught in Western North Carolina for 5 years, I knew it was time for me to take a chance and start my own company. After finding the perfect spot in the historic district in downtown Black Mountain, North Carolina, I went about the business of making a unique running specialty store. My friend Mike Bostic did a beautiful build out using reclaimed hardwoods from an old mill in Seneca, South Carolina. I stayed busy trying to get the best running shoes and apparel in the industry for BMRCo.
Finally, after months of hard work, I opened BMRCo. on October 15th, 2011. The local runners seemed very happy to have a welcoming place to buy shoes, apparel and nutritional supplements and the tourists were curious about this "country running store in Black Mountain, North Cackalacky". This store serves a specific purpose in town. We will be the home of all things running in Black Mountain. I invite you to come visit BMRCo. if you ever find yourself in the Carolina Mountains. Thank you for supporting this small, independent running specialty store. Y'all come Runnin'
