Mum on the run: 7 best jogging strollers

Join the growing ranks of parents investing in specialist buggies to work out while looking after baby

A new generation of hi-tech jogging buggies are enabling parents of young children to run to their hearts’ content. No wonder sales are rising so dramatically.

With young children to look after, it can be difficult to fit in a jog. But running pushchairs, which are designed for this very purpose, mean you can train while your passenger gets some fresh air. Everyone’s a winner.

Ideally, choose one with 16 inch wheels, a five point harness, a hand operated break, a fixed front wheel and a wrist loop. Also make sure your baby is six months old and able to hold their head up. In fact, some manufactures saying the baby should be at least a year old.

Be mindful that this isn’t like normal running – there will be increased pressure on your arms and shoulders that you’ll need to get used to. Also, be aware that these new buggies are big, even when folded, so be sure to have somewhere to store it.

Verdict

The BOB Revolution Pro is a jogger’s dream – as good for city shopping trips as rough terrain. It looks good too. The Bumbleride Indie comes in at a close second, thanks to it being nippy, lightweight, good looking and easy to steer.
