If you haven’t heard, I’ve been doing a lot of training (I’m actually writing this while on my bike.) the big downside of this amount of training is I do it alone. But when I see a race that looks interesting my first question is who can I run with? I usually ask my wife if she’s interested and for the most part she is. The difficult part is finding a race that will allow us to bring our son in a baby jogger.
A lot of the big races (Shamrock shuffle, Hot Chocolate, any half marathon) don’t allow people to run with a jogger for safety reasons. While I don’t 100% agree with this, I do understand wherethey’re coming from. I can definitely see some dumbass trying to PR arace while pushing a stroller.
Both RAM and Fleet Feet graciously emailed me back with a list of races that are jogger friendly and if you search CARA’s website there is a purple icon next to jogger friendly races as well.
