Our top 6 jogging strollers

Traditional strollers lack features that reduce the jarring shocks your baby could be subjected to from moving quickly over uneven terrain. When buying a jogging stroller, consider these safety features:

  • You should be able to lock the front wheel into position, so the stroller stays on a straight path as you run.
  • A stroller with a deep seat and five-point harness safety belt will keep your child from skidding out of the seat or leaning to the side while you’re moving.
  • A handbrake is essential for you to stop the stroller at a moment’s notice without having to come to a complete stop yourself.
  • All jogging strollers should include a shock-absorber system to protect your child from jarring bumps.

Here’s a round-up of our favourite jogging strollers:

Bébé Confort High Trek

R8 999, Baby City and selected baby specialist stores

This stroller is suitable for various terrains, thanks to its three big wheels, inflatable tyres, ultra-padded seat, high-performance suspension and shock absorbers. Even forest tracks can be tackled safely, as the stroller has a braking lever that’s located in the middle of the handle. The large seat, which is forward- and rear-facing, fully reclines, so your child will always be in a comfortable position.

TFK Jogger – Joggster Twist Lite

R13 499.99, babygroup.co.za

The Joggster Twist is a sturdy, sporty- looking stroller. It features a large canopy with integrated mosquito net, and the three-position adjustable footrest lifts, so your baby can lie flat when it’s nap time. We love the convenient large storage basket and side and hood pockets. The wheel locks easily and a handbrake makes braking on hills a cinch. When you’re done with your run, the pram is easy to fold and compact to store.
