Lets take a closer look
The Bugaboo runner comes either as a complete jogging pushchair,or as an accessory for existing Bugaboo owners, offering a quick and easy click-and-go jogging extension.
Ease of use is at the heart of this pushchairs design, making it the perfect addition for those who like to lead an active life style with their little ones in tow.
The Runners quick access handlebar brake effectively controls its speed and enables you to stop easily and safely, whenever you need to, with either hand. So if you see a pedestrian up ahead and you need to stop, therell be no need to tug back on the pushchair, causing your child to be forced backwards. Instead, you can gradually apply the brake to ensure you stop slowly, in good time.

Come rain or shine, your child will be protected from the elements with either the rain cover or sun canopy. All of the Runners fabrics are machine washable too, perfect if youre out jogging in wet weather and find a few spots of mud on the hood, though of course the built-in mud guards will help keep this from happening. If you register your Bugaboo Runner within three months of purchase, youll receive a complimentary year on top of the 2 year warranty, giving a total of 3 worry-free years.
The Urban Glide is sold as a sleek, lightweight design which is perfect for urban mobility. Weighing in at just 10.5kg, it is one of the lightest strollers on the market, making it super easy to transport and push along anywhere!

In fact, its so light that you can easily fold it and lift it with just one hand - perfect when youre juggling a wriggling child and you ned to pop your Urban Glide into the back of the car quickly! Although one review that we have read mentioned that the the brake wasnt quite as easy to use as other jogging strollers available, the general consensus is that this pushchair is a real winner.
