Asheville, N.C. is a trail running paradise.

With its seemingly endless network of trails, open roads and clean mountain air, this something-for-everyone environment has a magnetic appeal for endurance athletes. The enthusiastic running community has created a welcoming scene that has no trouble combining fitness and fun, embracing weekly group runs that start and end at any number of Asheville’s craft breweries. As Aaron Saft, co-owner of Foot RX Asheville, puts it, “From Pisgah Forest to the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Asheville is Appalachia at its finest. Go as far as your legs and lungs can carry you, then sit down and enjoy some local brews — we’ve got plenty of options! You’ll be treated to views, water crossings and lots of wildlife along the way.”
