KidRunner, one of our #50startups, launched its Kickstarter Wednesday in hopes of raising $50,000 to fund the production of 15 kidRunners for its ambassador team.
What the heck is a kidRunner? It’s a high-performance, all-terrain kid jogger that you pull behind you instead of pushing. That leaves your arms free to move or hold onto to your dog’s leash or eat a sandwich or do whatever you want.
The startup’s ambassador team includes a range of runners from everyday parents to Olympic hopefuls, and is led by Bend’s own Max King. (King won the Bigfoot 10K pulling his daughter in a kidRunner, running a 5:22 per mile pace).
Backers of the kidRunner Kickstarter will receive rewards ranging from a pro running tips courtesy of the ambassador team to kidRunner gear to a two-day running camp with King himself.
