  • Fixed wheel jogging strollers have long been considered a must have for the serious dedicated runner. The thought being that even a locked swivel wheel will have more play and wobble in the front wheel when running than a product designed to stay fixed all the time. This wobble can increase vibration to the handle bar and runner, it can cause a potentially dangerous situation should the wobble be significant enough to cause the stroller to tip, and if the stroller hits a significant bump it could cause the whole thing to steer off course.

    Jogging strollers with swivel wheels have a front wheel that rotates freely when not locked. This freedom of movement makes these strollers better at maneuvering around and navigating tight turns and spaces. The swivel wheel increases the versatility of the stroller because it makes it easier to use for everyday errands, strolls to the park, festivals or shopping. Decide mid-way you want to jog a little? No problem, you just lock the front wheel in place and off you go with the perfect stroller for jogging.

  • Jogging style strollers are usually durable, rugged, and versatile. They are normally made with higher quality materials and might be some of the only options if you are looking for pneumatic tires on your stroller. In addition, even if you don't jog now you might find that getting out of the house with baby and having the option to jog is a great way to stay positive, bond with baby, lose the baby weight, and increase positive thinking. While standard strollers are usually made with a lot of plastic or heavier materials and can be heavy to fold and lug around, jogging products are often lighter, take up less space when folded, and still have the creature comforts you might be looking for like a storage bin or cup holders. Some parents find that the right jogger can act as their only stroller or at least their main one; both the , , and Thule Urban Glide are all good examples of strollers you might be able to use on a daily basis.

  •  How to Choose the Best Jogging Stroller

    by Juliet Spurrier MD, Carrie Vickers, and BabyGearLab Review Team

    The ease of use metric for this review includes features that make using the stroller easier, or allow you to use it for more than just running. Some of the products in the review included lots of features like parent consoles and child trays. However, unlike other stroller categories many of the higher end models of jogging strollers didn't offer many additional features because they really are dedicated to running. The higher a product rates in this metric the more enjoyable it will be to use for the most part. These strollers usually offer some kind of storage, a quick access pocket or console and a canopy that covers baby.
