About the High Plains Harriers

The High Plains Harriers running club is dedicated to promoting fitness through running in Laramie and southeast Wyoming. We encourage running at all levels by supporting competitive racing, fun runs, social runs, and trail running. We are involved in events year-round and aim to provide support to event organizers in addition to providing an avenue for local athletes to meet and train with others in the community.
