best inexpensive jogging stroller 2018

If you love running but you don’t have anybody to watch your baby as you run, a jogging stroller is a must have. If it’s your first time running with a stroller, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find it’s actually an excellent full body workout. Your arms get just as much of a workout as your legs do because you’re pushing the stroller in front of you and maneuvering it as you run.

I tried it for the first time several years ago and it quickly became one of my go to workouts to get my post baby body back to where I wanted it. I found that doing this just a couple times a week helped me to lose weight quickly and gain muscle tone in my arms, shoulders, and back.

The only problem is jogging strollers are EXPENSIVE! When I first started looking into buying one myself, I was alarmed at just how much they cost. The average price is around $400-$500 and many are twice that!

When you look at the features of an expensive stroller vs an inexpensive one it’s understandable why they cost so much more but that doesn’t make it any easier to cover the costs.

Some of the things you’ll find on a more expensive jogging stroller are:

  • Adjustable handlebars to make running comfortable for parents of all heights.
  • Rear brakes with a hand switch accessible from the handlebars for running on hilly terrain
  • The material these strollers are made of is higher quality and more durable. (That doesn’t mean you can’t find a good jogging stroller that is inexpensive but offers the maximum safety and comfort for your little one.)
  • Zipped, water resistant storage compartments to keep your belongings safe during your run.
  • A greater range of accessories to make your run more convenient.
  • Better stroller agility and endurance to handle all terrains
  • Higher max weight capacity and more

These are pretty amazing features in a baby stroller if you’re willing and able to pay a higher price for convenience. However, I feel that none of them are a necessity if you just want to get out and run. You can get a stroller that doesn’t have these extra features without sacrificing your baby’s comfort or safety.

That said, I think these 3 strollers are the best inexpensive jogging strollers you’ll find so that you can get back on the trail and get the most out of this excellent workout!

Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller

Rating: 5/5

Features:

  • Cheapest Place to Buy: Amazon
  • Max Stroller Weight Capacity: 50 pounds
  • Dimensions: 21 x 47 x 41 in
  • Weight:5 pounds
  • Car Set Compatible? Yes
  • One Hand Fold? Yes
  • Extra Storage: This stroller has a large storage compartment underneath it.
  • Adjustable Handlebar? No
  • Brake Type: Rear Parking Brake
  • Seating capacity: This stroller only seats one child

This is an amazing, sound jogging stroller that is in anybody’s price range.  You won’t find a better jogging stroller under $100. It is designed with your child’s comfort and safety as its highest priority. You’ll get an excellent workout and your child will enjoy the ride. It doesn’t have as high of a weight capacity as some of the more expensive strollers but at a max capacity of 50 pounds, it should hold most kids between the ages of 0-4 years old. It’s advertised to be fit for any terrain but, I’d recommend it for a steady even terrain myself. If you need something more durable, I’d go with one of these others to ensure the safety of your child.

Graco Fastaction Fold Jogger Click Connect Stroller

Rating: 5/5

Features:

  • Cheapest Place to Buy: Amazon
  • Max Stroller Weight Capacity: 50 pounds
  • Dimensions: 24 x 40 x 42 in
  • Weight: 35 pounds
  • Car Set Compatible? Yes
  • One Hand Fold? Yes
  • Extra Storage: This stroller has a large storage compartment underneath it.
  • Adjustable Handlebar? No
  • Brake Type: 2 Step Brakes
  • Seating capacity: This stroller only seats one child

Graco prides themselves on creating high quality baby products that will keep your child safe and comfortable at a price that’s’ affordable for all families. This jogging stroller is another one of their great products that is the ultimate crossover stroller, combining all the comfort and convenience features of a traditional stroller with the performance and maneuverability of an all-terrain jogger. It is a bit on the heavier side but with 4 reclining positions your little one can enjoy your run with you or sleep comfortably. This stroller has many great features like click Connect technology allows for a one-step, secure connection of infant car seats to  the stroller. It’s a little more expensive than the Baby Trend stroller but is also better on a variety of terrains.

Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller

Rating: 5/5

Features:

  • Cheapest Place to Buy: Amazon
  • Max Stroller Weight Capacity: 50 pounds
  • Dimensions: 46″ H x 25″ W x 54″ D
  • Folded Dimensions: 19”H x 25”W x 34”D
  • Weight: 7 pounds
  • Car Set Compatible? Yes, you can buy a car seat adapter to go with it.
  • One Hand Fold: No
  • Extra Storage: This stroller has a large storage compartment underneath it.
  • Adjustable Handlebar? No
  • Brake Type: 1 Step parking brake
  • Seating capacity: This stroller seats one child

Of these 3 strollers, the Joovy Zoom is the most expensive, but it is still at least half the price of most jogging strollers you’ll find. It’s 10 pounds lighter than many other jogging strollers and, with its solid design, it’s comparable to several high-end competing strollers.

The 12-inch front wheel swivels for maximum maneuverability and can lock straight when you want to start your run. The rear wheels measure 16-inches and have a one-step linked parking brake. It comes with a tire pump for its pneumatic tires.

This light jogger folds easily and is very compact with an auto-lock feature. Quick-release wheels allow for hassle-free storage. The oversized canopy adjusts to any position and protects your child while you’re on-the-go but your child is still visible to you through a peek-a-boo window.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful information. A baby stroller can keep your baby safe, offer a comfortable seat to take naps or play with toys. Generally, baby strollers come in different sizes, styles, variations and features. I have A stroller and a car seat for my baby.
