Shark Tank KidRunner Update

KidRunner Update

  • Entrepreneur: Will Warne
  • Business: Pull-along jogging stroller
  • Ask: $500,000 for 20% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

Will entered Shark Tank Season 7 accompanied by professional runner Max King, a world champion, and by their friend Sophie. The KidRunnger allows children to be securely strapped into the jogging stroller which featured a lightweight and safe design. The parents could attach an adjustable waist harness to themselves and go running with ease.

With numerous sports ambassadors, the KidRunner was featured in various races. After an unsuccessful Kickstarter, Will continued to perfect the product, subjecting it to rigorous testing.

Robert Herjavec tested the product by running around the tank with it. Will then stated that the product was a prototype.  He also said he aimed to sell each KidRunner for $750, which most sharks thought was a lot of money, other than Kevin O’Leary who said he’d seen normal strollers going for $2,500.

After some discussion, Barbara Corcoran went out, stating that she believed Will to be a perfectionist and that he was very unlikely to get the product to market. All of the sharks agreed with her, which marked a first in the tank. Mark Cuban and Robert followed by going out, along with Kevin.

Lori Greiner said she didn’t think the KidRunner was engaging for kids, but admitted that she wasn’t a runner so she generally failed to see the appeal. She also went out. 

Will had to leave the tank without a deal. Do you think KidRunner thrived despite these circumstances? Keep reading our KidRunner update to find out what happened next.

Our KidRunner update shows that despite the sharks’ cynicism, the product did finally end up on the market, years later. It fully sold out during its first run, and the company is continuing to enjoy an annual revenue of around $4 million.
