The Best Jogging Strollers For Running With Your Baby

These baby joggers tested at the top of the class.

Parents buy jogging strollers so they can stay fit while staying with their kids. Getting some fresh and exercise while spending time with your little one sounds like recreational multitasking at its finest. Whether you enjoy power walking through a park, taking your tot on an off-road adventure, or running a 5K with your tiny companion, you’ll want a jogging stroller that’s up to the task.

Unlike traditional carriages, joggers are built to buffer baby along the bumpiest of rides by featuring three super-sized wheels, rear- or all-wheel suspension, shock absorbers, and brakes either traditional parking or hand-activated drum brakes designed to help you slow down when necessary.

Most jogging strollers are geared toward babies age six-months or older, since an infant’s neck muscles aren’t strong enough to withstand even the most casual of fun runs. But once you’re ready to hit the road, you’ll want to study these three-wheelers carefully as not all joggers are created equal.

For example, a lockable swivel front wheel is a feature that offers the best of both worlds: stability on long runs and maneuverability on short strolls. Taller parents and caregivers want an adjustable handlebar so they’re not stooped over by the time they cross the finish line. It goes without saying that convenient collapsibility and storage are key, so determining how easily and compactly these strollers fold is another component to consider. Some joggers even accommodate infant seats for an all-in-one travel system.
