The Bugaboo Runner chassis can only be used with seats of the Bugaboo Cameleon³, Bugaboo Bee (2010 model onwards), Bugaboo Buffalo and Bugaboo Donkey. The seats of previous models (Bugaboo Frog, Bugaboo Gecko and previous Bugaboo Cameleon models) are not suitable with the Bugaboo Runner chassis.

The Bugaboo Runner is suitable for jogging with children from 9 months old up to 17 kg / 37.5 lbs. For this reason, you should not use the car seat or bassinet with the Bugaboo Runner. We recommend using another Bugaboo stroller for the first 9 months.
Due to safety regulations, we do not recommend using the Bugaboo Runner with children younger than 9 months old.
The Bugaboo Runner does not have reflectors as our research demonstrated that most parents would not consider going for a jog with their child in the dark. Those who do tend to already own reflective clothing or other means to remain visible in the dark.
Keep your tires at a pressure of 3.5 bar / 50 psi to experience the lowest possible rolling resistance and therefore ensure the best jogging performance. Please see the Bugaboo Runner User Guide for information about how to inflate the tires.
The front wheel tracking system is designed to ensure a straight and smooth ride. If you notice any deviation, please use the adjustment nut on the front wheel to optimize your run.
We do not recommend placing a bag on the handlebar as the Bugaboo Runner may become unstable.
The fabrics of the Bugaboo Runner can be washed at 30 degrees Celcius. Please check the fabric label before washing.
