Live Your Best Life With The Thule Urban Glide 2

When I began running in 2016, I thought it was as simple as you put on shoes and you’d run, at the time I didn’t have the Thule Urban Glide 2. This content is somewhat true however, depending on the season of life that you’re in, there are other things that will make the journey easier. My Thule Urban Glide Jogging Stroller was one of the most critical and often overlooked items that had the most significant impact on my success as a mom and a runner.

In 2018, I lucked out and won a Thule Urban Glide Jogging stroller from one of our local Baby & Kid Stores at their grand opening event. Back then I don’t recall there being a Thule store, especially not one of the caliber of the West Vancouver location which actually happens to be the first Thule Store in Canada.

Now, that’s two years after I began running, so trust me when I say I know the difference a good quality jogging stroller like the Thule Urban Glide 2 can make.

“How do you find the time when you’re a mom with little ones?” It’s one of the most common questions I hear from my runners that have young kids. I spent a solid two years attempting to fit my running around life with two kids, trust me I know the struggle. I can honestly say, the Thule Urban Glide 2 Jogging Stroller is the single best investment you will make that will benefit not only you but your child as well.

The Urban Glide 2 is an all-terrain stroller with a lightweight design. Featuring large 16″ wheels and suspension for comfort and control. The front wheel swivels for strolling around town and also locks in place for jogging or rougher terrain of the North Shore. If for some reason you need to fill your tire or get a flat, the large wheels unlike the plastic wheels can be fixed just like your bike tires.

Now it’s been a minute since I had my Thule Urban Glide, so you’re going to need to give me a moment to gush over the improvements that have been made from 2018 to 2022.

The integrated twist hand brake is new compared to the version I had but basically, it offers improved security and braking control on the hills and while running. The footbrake on the Thule Urban Glide 2 also has a red pad, making the lock and release much faster, easier, and more comfortable on the feet than the version I had, which simply had a bar.

So what makes this one so unique? Thule has truly gone above and beyond in making sure that not only are our kids comfortable but that they are safe as well. It features a 5-point harness to hold your little in place comfortably and safely whether you’re running errands or on the trail.

Part of being a busy mom on the go means that often you will have packed enough snacks, spare clothes, and everything else in between to survive nuclear warfare.

Thule has made sure not to skimp on storage, with a large cargo basket with a zip top cover and a rear mesh pocket (another feature that is new to me), there is a place for all those extra things without the stroller becoming bulky. There are even two mesh compartments on the inside sides where your child sits, perfect for easy access to snacks or toys.

One of the features both Zoe and I loved was the reclining seat and how easy it is to fully recline your child for on-the-go naps. With just one hand your child could be fully reclined and have a nice comfy snooze.

When Zoe wasn’t yelling out motivational phrases like “let’s go Mommy” or “keep running mama” she was definitely stealing naps wherever she could. To make those naps even more possible while on the go, the peekaboo window and magnetic closure in the multi-position canopy ensure that your little running coach is riding in style and comfort; you can check on them without risking waking them up.

For the really busy mom, you’re going to love the next feature. Thule Urban Glide 2 has a one-handed, compact fold which makes storing and transporting a breeze. We’ve all been there trying to load all the things into the car and then fighting to collapse the stroller while the kids are screaming in their car seats. Just picture yourself with one hand you can smoothly fold it down and pack it in your trunk.

One thing I should note is the size of the stroller when folded is a bit large and doesn’t always fit as nicely in the trunk depending on the car size. When I had my Thule stroller, I did spend a fair bit of time researching trunk size when I was in the market for a new-to-me car to make sure it would fit into the trunk. So my one piece of advice is to make sure this stroller will fit into your trunk! SUVs and minivans should be fine but cars and even some subcompact cars might be a tighter fit.

This post is truly a full-circle moment for me as a runner and an endurance run coach as I get to share my knowledge and love for this stroller in addition to gifting one of you lucky people the opportunity to take your fitness back. My friends at Thule in West Vancouver know how important running is to me and how big of an impact winning my Thule Stroller was so they’re giving away one Thule Urban Glide 2 valued at $899.95 plus tax to one lucky person.

  22. That stroller looks incredible! Would love to be considered for the giveaway. This is just what I need to get back into running with my 1yo! Thanks for the review and the giveaway!

  23. I’d like to have one of this! Aside from quality, what makes them great are the wheels. I’ve had 2 strollers with tiny wheels, and I struggled with bumps in the road, the gutter, and curbs.

  24. Thule is literally the best! The wheels make it easy to hit the trails or the pavement, and it doesn’t feel like you’re pushing much!

    We’d love this for our medical girl! We’ll need something to help us get around for walks etc when she gets tired, or we need to protect her equipment 🙂

  25. I love that it can traverse dirt trails with the bigger tires that won’t jostle to kid around as much…and the one handed fold.
