I need some help from all the runners out there. My husband really wants a jogging stroller so he can take my son running with him, but I have NO idea which one to get! I know some say they are jogging stollers, but should only be used for walking, etc, etc. So, any of you have any recommendations for a good one or know of ones I should stay away from?? Thought this would be a good Christmas present if I could get it figured out!



Thanks! Breann

There are two kinds of jogging strollers; fixed and swivel front wheel. Fixed front wheel delivers firm and straight steering on a running path. Swivel front wheel is flexible to be altered into two modes: straight locked (for jogging), and full rotating (for daily activities that requires various maneuvers and turnings). Here's the link to objective reviews, and further features description on jogging strollers: http://jogging-stroller-reviews.net/
Fyi, your LO should at least have a stable neck control/be able to sit unassisted before s/he can be placed in a jogging stroller for a ride

Baby Trend has an excellent and very inexpensive one. Target has them for just over $100 and it is lightweight, folds easily and rides super smooth! A great buy!@!!

We have the jeep three wheeled stroller. Got it as a baby gift but it is from Babies R Us.
We have a nine month old boy and he loves it. The music player hookup is really fun. .
Ours is black and the front wheel will go from stationary to swivel.
We don't do as much running as we probably should in it but I think it is a great stroller all the same.
My only complaint is that it doesn't fold down very small at all. It takes up my hatch back almost entirely, if this is your second stroller then I don't think it would be the problem for you that it is for me.
But it is very easy to open and close, It can be done one handed.

We got the Jeep Overland, and absolutely LOVE it. We hook up the iPod to it, and get music while we're running. It's got an adjustable handle so both my husband and I (he's taller) can run comfortably with it. It's black and yellow, not exactly a girly stroller, but this way we can use it if we ever have a boy! And so hubby doesn't feel silly running around with a pink stroller!



It's difficult to turn corners with it, the wheels are fixed so they go straight. If they turned at all I don't know if I could keep it straight while jogging. But we do use it to run to the store once in a while, and walk while we're inside picking up some things. So obviously it can be used for walking if necessary.



We got it on Amazon.com, for about $170 I think. Completely worth it, especially since as far as I can tell that's a pretty good price for a good quality one.



My cousin has a double jogging stroller, and she just finished her first half marathon!

Hi - i have a 23 month old and a 9 month old and i got the Schwinn Double Jogger - its a GREAT stroller (my only complaint is when you have the wheel in walking mode - where it swivels) it tends to shake but that is because my youngest doesnt have enough weight to keep his side down this will not be an issue however when you have it in the running (stationary front wheel) mode. I have the double jogger but i am sure that the single jogger is just as great! hope this helps
