Warrior Run is a borough in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 584 at the 2010 census.
The first settlers of Warrior Run were Connecticut Yankees Elisha and Anna Blackman and their young children Henry and Ebenezer. In 1791, they cleared trees and built a log cabin.
Coal mining was the chief industry in the region. In 1864, the Warrior Run Mining Company was organized; it reopened the old Holland and Hillman mine. The company constructed a breaker at the foot of the mountain which opened in 1867. At about the same time, both the Lehigh Valley Railroad and the Nanticoke Branch of the Central Railroad of New Jersey completed their lines through the area, thus making it possible to conveniently mine, transport, and market the area's coal. Ultimately, in the 20th century, the coal industry in the region died out.
Warrior Run Mining Village arose on the land owned by the Warrior Run Mining Company. On January 25, 1895, the Borough of Warrior Run was incorporated.
