How to Choose a Jogging Stroller for your Family
Once you have decided that your family needs a jogging stroller (if you are unsure, check out our home page to help you decide), here are two questions to help you find the best one to buy.
- Do you want to use the stroller for tasks other than jogging?
- What ages do you want to use your jogging stroller for?
1. Do you want to use the stroller for tasks other than jogging?
This is an important consideration as some jogging strollers, such as the BOB Ironman Single Stroller are only appropriate for jogging (but very good for jogging), whereas others such as the Baby Jogger Summit X3 Single Stroller, are also suitable for short walks or walking around the mall.
Serious runners may consider purchasing two separate strollers – one for running and one for everyday use. This will allow you to have the best of both worlds, with the option to purchase the best jogging stroller for runners and perhaps an umbrella stroller for other tasks. More than just running, some jogging strollers such as the Allen Sports Premier Jogger can be used as bike trailers which may be of interest to bike riding parents.
2. What ages do you want to use your jogging stroller for?
Although some of the jogging strollers listed here are suitable from birth, they should not be used for jogging with your baby until they are at least 6 months of age and have reached certain infant development milestones.
It is worth considering how old your children might be when you wish to stop running with them and work out what weight capacity your stroller needs to be based on that. Although a weight capacity of 50 pounds may be fine for a regular stroller and last your child until they no longer need a stroller, you may wish to jog with your children when they are older than this, such as 5 or 6. If you think this is a possibility, it is worth buying a stroller with a higher weight capacity, such as the Joovy Zoom 360 Swivel Wheel Jogging Stroller which can hold up to 75 pounds. This should easily suit your child through most of elementary school.

Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller Review
You can choose between five bright and colorful shades for this particular jogging stroller, all of which look fantastic, and pair well with the solid appearance of the stroller too.
There are two large tires on the front which swivel and roll easily no matter what terrain you are traveling over, as well as a front swivel wheel which can also be locked or unlocked, depending on whether you are jogging or not, with a lockable low speed function. The front reflectors are also great for added safety and visibility in lower light conditions.
The stroller may be hard-wearing, with its steel frame, but it is still very lightweight and easy to push, as well as coming with several other added extras – child tray and cup holder is included, and you can add a car seat to create a travel system too. The handle is extra wide and ergonomically shaped for comfort whilst jogging or simple pushing.

BOB Revolution FLEX Stroller Review
This BOB jogging stroller is fantastic value for money, and one which will certainly hold up to any jogging or off-road expedition you put it through. Available in black, blue, green, and orange, all attractive options, there is a swivel front wheel which is lockable and allows the stroller to make tight corners, and holds steady when jogging.
The padded bar is adjustable to nine different positions, to offer comfort no matter what your height, and the suspension system ensures a smooth ride for your child, no matter what type of terrain you are traveling over, minimizing bumps and higher speed travel. On top of this, you can easily collapse the stroller down, thanks to a two step process, which can be done with one hand for ease.
We know that BOB is a big name brand in the stroller world and this gives extra peace of mind that you are dealing with a high quality product.
Baby Jogger Summit X3 Single Stroller Review
We rate the Baby Jogger Summit X3 Single Stroller at an amazing 4.9/5. It is a great choice.
This Stroller features excellent maneuverability on any terrain as well as versatility. This stroller is good for both jogging and day to day activities. One of the best features of this stroller is that you can flip a switch on the handlebar of the stroller to lock the front wheel when jogging, and flip it again when you want to go back to ordinary activities.
It is great for older kids with a weight capacity of 75 pounds and plenty of room. It also has a near-flat recline, so you could use it for a small baby when going to the mall. It has a fabulous sun canopy and good storage. There is natural and all wheel suspension.
This stroller is a great choice for families who want to be able to go jogging but still have a full featured stroller that is suitable for walking around the shops. It may be the best jogging stroller for the city.
BOB Revolution Pro Single Stroller Review
Another BOB product in a big range, this particular single stroller is very lightweight and can be used to work well with tight turns and higher speeds with ease, despite its appearance! The rear deceleration brake is hand activated, which gives you much more control over your journey, and allows for a safer ride for your child. When travelling up and down hills, this is a major bonus.
The padded handlebar is also adjustable to nine different heights and this means that however tall you are, you won’t be uncomfortable on your journey. The front swivel wheel is also lockable, so when jogging or going at a slower speed you have higher control levels again.
The suspension system is adjustable, which again, is better news for your child in terms of bumps. On top of this, you can easily collapse the stroller down with a two step process, which allows ease of travel and storage.
