Mike Guyer, living in Black Mountain, NC, uses all of Western North Carolina's rugged peaks as his play ground. He enjoys training and racing on trails and prefers ultramarathons to shorter distances. His accomplishments include trail 100 mile (1), 100k (3), 50 mile (6), and 50k(?) finishes, as well as numerous shorter races. Occasionally he sneaks in a 24hr timed event, at which his best is 94 miles. Guyer is the event director for Vertical Runner in Black Mountain, a small town just outside of Asheville, NC. He organizes and promotes races, group runs, and other events associated with Vertical Runner. He leads the well know Black Mountain Running Posse, a group that runs weekly. Mike Guyer's future aspirations include running a multiday event, qualifying for one of the US's premier 100 milers, and building an even stronger running community in his home town.
I've finished over 25 ultra marathon races, including my first 100 miler in 2015, and placing 3rd with 93 total miles at a trail 24 hour event. I've finished many other races in the 40K-100K+ realm.
