A KidRunner RUN + SKI Family Story - Brian and Caitlin Gregg

A KidRunner RUN + SKI Family Story - Brian and Caitlin Gregg

We want to thank KidRunner RUN and SKI friends, Brian and Caitlin Gregg. Since we first envisioned creating the best Nordic Ski solution for parents and kids, Brian and Caitlin have shared their enthusiasm for what we are doing and why. 

This week, we welcomed a partnership with one of Minneapolis's best Nordic Ski shops, PioneerMidWest. We are honored to meet their customers and share KidRunner with their community. 

The following is a letter Brian Gregg wrote for the PioneerMidWest community about his family's KidRunner story. Enjoy! 



The One Piece of Active Kid Equipment I bring everywhere KR RUN & SKI - 

When our daughter was born I dove deeply into the various active kid gear
available on the market. I either own or have used most of the different
devices out there. I have always enjoyed being outside and exercising, and
I was nervous about how that might change when we added a little one to our
team. Kidrunner is a solution for running and skiing and is my absolute
favorite. I have used a Bob and a Chariot for running but I love being
able to use my hands and not modify my stride. The Kid Runner is my go to
for Run an Ski. (I like the Shot Gun Bike for biking). We have run
multiple marathons for a sunday long run, but mostly it is a nice 1-1.5
hour evening run together as a family. After 4 years we are on our second
set of rubber tires.

KidRunner recently launched Kid Runner Ski 2.0. I have been skiing for the
last 4 years with KidRunner Ski 1.0, I love the product but it has required
a few modifications and it has been fun to work with KidRunner to put those
improvements into the 2.0 model. The cockpit is collapsable for easy
transport and the skis/wheels transition with a push button which is great
for transport and/or a quick transition. We have flown with our KidRunner
all over the world, as it checks in as a 'free' bag as a stroller with most
airlines. We bring our kidrunner with us everywhere since it allows us to
go out together without needing to track down a sitter. The opportunity to
play, ski and run together as a family is a major priority in my life and I
love that our daughter can see the importance of health and fitness in our
lives. She loves to listen to our conversations and join in to tell her
own stories. We are also big fans of listening to audiobooks.

Now that she is older we love to bring her skis along so that she can enjoy
some skiing on her own too. She also has a chance to ride in the KidRunner
if she gets tired. Papa and Mama need to get their workout in too. This
way we are not pushing her to be out longer that she wants to.

My KidRunner setup is the lightest stroller on the market at just under 20
pounds. I am also a fan of the single-point connection to the waist belt.
If you are looking for the best option available for Run and Ski, I
encourage you to invest in a KidRunner. KidRunner is offering a limited
time discount of 15% off of their pre-order with code *KR SKI*
