The awards go to:

  • The Thule Urban Glide ran away with the Editors’ Choice award and the highest score in the group. The founder of BabyGearLab.com, Dr. Juliet Spurrier, says “The Urban Glide really impressed and surprised us by coming in ahead of the BOB strollers.” Dr. Spurrier went on to say that, “The Urban Glide is impressive in its run-ability, maneuverability, and overall quality. We really think parents will like this newcomer to the jogging world.”
  • The Thule Chariot Cougar 2 with Jog Kit earned the award for Top Pick for Versatility. It has a unique design that allows different attachments to be used for different activities. Pediatrician Juliet Spurrier says, “The Chariot Cougar 2 is great for the outdoor enthusiast. With attachments available for strolling, jogging, skiing, and biking, it is hard to sit still when you own this stroller. We loved that it seats two, runs straight, and has adjustable suspension.”
  • The Baby Trend Expedition earned the Best Value award. The Expedition is an economical stroller that is good for running errands and the occasional lite jog. Dr. Spurrier, BabyGearLab founder, says, “The Expedition may not be the best option for serious runners, but it is a budget friendly stroller with the features and functions required to use it as an everyday option. And if parents want to jog, it can handle that on occasion too.”

BabyGearLab performed extensive testing of all the strollers over several months to ensure unbiased and accurate reporting of features and functionality. Strollers were used by parents and runners alike to determine the best in each metric. Test results and user feedback were used to determine award winners and scores.

BabyGearLab has also published a buying advice article on how to choose the best jogging style stroller.
