Top Rated Jogging Strollers

two kids in a jogging stroller

Our kids in our Bob Duallie Revolution stroller!

One of the hardest things about becoming a parent is balancing family time and time for yourself (which includes working out and staying healthy).

That’s why jogging strollers rock since you can spend time with your kids and get great exercise at the same time.

We have put together a great list of top rated jogging strollers, including four single jogging strollers and two double jogging strollers.

I’ve found that one of my favorite activities is to take my youngest or (two) in our double BOB Duallie stroller for a run.

I get some exercise, the kids get new scenery and some rest time, and we all win.

Jogging strollers are also usually made for tougher use, such as off-road running, and also work extremely well for long periods of walking.

Many come with a hand break or leash, and some even come with plug-ins for music or your phone.

Depending on how many kids you have, many parents opt for a double jogging stroller, so they can take two kids out for a run.

We have five single top rated jogging strollers, as well as two double top rated jogging strollers.


We’ve broken out the pros and cons from the top rated jogging strollers below.
