BABY ON BOARD

The weather’s get­ting warmer. This spring, why not take your lit­tle one along on your train­ing runs?

With so many impressive run­ning strollers to choose from, it’s dif­fi­cult to see where high per­for­mance stops and com­fort be­gins. The Thule Glide (R8 999) has an eco­nom­i­cal de­sign for the run­ner, and a com­fort­able seat for baby.

You can choose your own han­dle­bar height, for ef­fi­cient pos­ture, and take the stroller on gravel paths, safe in the knowl­edge the 45cm rear-sus­pen­sion wheels and re­clin­ing padded seat will keep your pas­sen­ger safe – so com­fort­able, your baby may even fall asleep!

A fixed 40cm front wheel keeps the tra­jec­tory true, and you’ll be sur­prised how lit­tle en­ergy you spend pushing it on flat sec­tions.

The Thule Glide is the fastest pram over the half-marathon dis­tance. Calum Neff was at the helm, pushing his 11-month-old daugh­ter Hol­land, when he achieved the cur­rent world record: 1:11.27!
