KidRunner is a jogger stroller created by avid runner and dad Will Warner of Bend, Oregon (aka runner’s mecca). What makes the KidRunner different from others on the market is that the child is carried in a pod behind the jogger which lets the runner freely swing his/her arms instead of pushing a stroller. Warner has a patent on the waist harness. He pitched KidRunner on Shark Tank in April 2016. He went into the Tank seeking an investment of $500,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity but leaves empty-handed.
One year after the Shark Tank episode aired, KidRunner sold out of its Summer 2017 limited release, and released its next release in May 2018. KidRunner is getting great reviews in a variety of magazines including Men’s Journal, Interesting Engineering, and Gear Junkie, among others. [Related: 27 All-Time Favorite ‘Shark Tank’ Products]
