What's wrong with jogging strollers in races? Well, if you've ever run in a crowded race, you know how tough and exhausting it can be to try to maneuver around runners. When someone is pushing a stroller, it's even harder to work your way around them, and it's not fair to other runners to make them have to slow down.
It can also be unsafe for someone pushing a jogging stroller to try to move around other runners. Because most jogging strollers have a stationary front wheel, they can be difficult and awkward to turn. When trying to maneuver them in tight spaces, it's easy to clip someone or unknowingly cut someone off and cause a fall. It's also much harder to stop quickly when you're pushing a jogging stroller, so you run the risk of hitting into someone if they suddenly stop short in front of you.
Make it easier on yourself and run races stroller-free -- you'll definitely run faster. And if you really want to do a race with your little one, look for a walking event that is stroller-friendly.
