The sports-oriented design lets you run or jog over any terrain with complete control while babies enjoy a smooth ride minus the bumps.

What to look for in a running pram


It goes without saying that safety is the top priority when you purchase a running pram. You should look for a running pram that’s durable, lightweight and has a dual braking system. This means a parking brake and also a twist hand brake for slowing down smoothly. As running prams are purpose-built for going faster than regular prams, they should be equipped with wheel suspension for making the ride smoother and safer for both parent and bub. A swivel front wheel that locks into place will turn your pram into a powerful jogging pram. An adjustable handle will make it easier to steer while a one-handed recline mechanism lets you find the comfiest position for babies.


Find exactly what you’re looking for at Metro Baby with running prams by trusted brands like UPPABaby and Thule. We’ve also got a huge range of single, double and travel prams plus pram accessories by brands like Bugaboo, Maxi Cosi and Cybex.

 


Everything you need to know before jogging with a running pram


Running prams are specially designed to handle faster speeds over any terrain. They’re built with three wheels instead of four; one front wheel and two rear wheels. Wheel suspension and air-filled tyres means that every run will be smooth for your baby and for you. The best running prams have a front wheel that locks and offers an adjustable tracker that will help to keep the pram straight. Some prams also offer remote wheel lock which lets you switch between swivel and locked mode.


If you plan on also using the car on your travels, consider purchasing car adaptors. These accessories will turn your carrycot or bassinet into a travel system that can easily transition from running pram to car and back again.

FAQ’s:


Is it safe to run with a pram?


Running strollers have been specifically designed for parents who are serious runners. The 3 wheel design with suspension allows prams to reach faster speeds and deliver a smooth ride over any terrain that is safe for babies. Dual-brakes and a front wheel lock means that the pram stays stable and you have complete control. It is recommended that babies be older than 6 months of age to ensure their necks are strong enough to endure the faster ride.
