    Default Looking for a good pram to run with...

    Hi everyone. When I have my bub I am keen to get back into running. I wondered if anyone has any recommendations on a good, safe & lightweight running/jogging pram I could consider?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm yet to have bubs but when I enquired I was informed that the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle would be a good fit for this need

    I was hoping a P&T would be good for jogging though!

    I have always jogged with mine (the E3) - but really you shouldn't. It isn't anything like a proper jogging pram. It doesn't corner well, I often rip the basket underneath from dragging it over things and the kids get bumped around a fair bit - it would be a serious no no for little babies.

    When you say jog though - what do you mean? 2-3 kms/h on pavement is probably fine, 4-5 km/h would be harsh on pram.

    Mountain Buggy Terrain or NZ made Urban would be my only choice.

    Um... I'm talking more like 8km/hr+. When I'm back into it & get a little fitness back I hope to be doing 10km every few days in an hour or less. So yep, I need something built for the purpose.

    My friend from mothers group and I both have the Mountain Buggy Swift, I'm not a jogger, but she is and she found it great to run with. It's a little smaller and lighter than the Mountain Buggy Urban, and is a good all purpose pram. The only negatives to it are that it doesn't have the option of adding a toddler seat, and the only capsule that will attach to it has a low safety rating.

    IF you are serious about running I would buy a dedicated jogging stroller with bigger wheels and can handle it properly. I also believe it is not reccommended to start running with a child until they have good head control, 3-6months up. Many 3 wheel prams do say they are not intended for running with

    Schwinn and baby jogger have 'proper' jogging strollers.

    When you buy a pram you are not going to find one that does everything you want. You may find you need 2-3 ie one for walking, one for running and one for wuick trips to the shops. That is the reality of it unfortunately

    Yep, that's the plan. We've got a Strider Plus for getting around town, I'm looking now at what to buy specifically for running with. I'm hoping bubs will be ok to run with from about 3-4 months, but had only planned to walk before that so we're both comfortable being out & about etc.

    I'll have a look at Schwinn, thanks.
