About Us

Welcome to Harrier! Trail running kit for every body designed for superior fit, comfort and function alongside excellent customer support.

Founded in 2020 by Kate Parker, a passionate trail runner herself, Harrier was born out of a desire to provide trail runners with a different option – one that offered exceptional value, thoughtful design, and outstanding quality. Our products are meticulously designed with purpose and functionality for on the trails.

We believe trail running should be inclusive and accessible for all. We celebrate successes on all levels within the trail community - from the first time 5k to the ultra marathon. Our mission is to encourage and support people of all abilities to enjoy the physical, mental and emotional benefits of being on the trails.

As a team, we are dedicated, bold and passionate about how we can help more people with their trail running, by sharing in their journeys, challenges and achievements.

"When I started trail running, I was overwhelmed by the amount of gear it seemed I needed. Other brands touted their expensive gear with flashy marketing campaigns featuring elite athletes, which felt intimidating and unaffordable. Neither the cheap nor the expensive options seemed to cater to my needs, and finding helpful resources on choosing the right kit was a challenge.

Harrier was born from my determination to challenge the overhyped perception of trail running and bring it back to its essence. We believe in the right gear, used in the right way, to simply enjoy the trails. Harrier is about authenticity, affordability, and never compromising on quality, design, or function. We are trail running for every body."
