Vertical Runner Breckenridge was founded in July, 2013. The VRB family came together in a rendition of serendipity and epic timing. It was in the basement of our home that the idea for VRB was born and it our hot tub that the “America’s Highest Running Store” was realized!  

Summit County has always had a very active hiking, road running, and trail running population, yet there was nothing pulling the running community together. VRB has made it a mission to create, connect, and unify the local, Colorado, and national running communities. Being an active part of races, clubs, and “all things running” has become one of the biggest values of VRB.

Vertical Runner Breckenridge also saw a need for high quality, affordable, and cutting edge running shoes and gear. Knowing the importance of selection in shoes and gear, VRB carries a wide variety of shoes and all things running. Gait analysis and proper shoe fitting help to provide the best comfort, support, and experience in a shoe. Providing a knowledgeable staff, in-store treadmill, and high quality merchandise allow us to get you into the best possible equipment for your unique feet, goals, and terrain.

At VRB our belief is that we are more than just a shoe store. We are a place for you to meet, grow, and connect with other runners. We have been a part of the Ultra Race of Champions, Breck Crest, and the Summit Trail Running Series. Being a unifying force in the Summit County running community is a focal point for VRB.
