Description

The Active Dad who is a runner for several years, having run half-marathons and marathons, since a few months has the possibility to run with sons in a stroller, which he does with much pleasure. After this time he decided to share his observations about running strollers and point which features are necessary, which are pros and which cons for a parent running with kids. So here is the Thule Urban Glide 2 Review.

The Strengths of Thule Urban Glide 2 Jogging Stroller

+ all-terrain stroller
