Great Pram - REally Happy
I was a bit bias when selecting my first pram as wanted to support the NZ Mountain Buggy from the start, but I have genuinely been really happy with it. I am an active mother - I go walking a LOT and find this pram super easy to maneuver and love the accessories to convert it for the different age stages they go through. Only thing I found was the wheels seemed to not hold their air quite as well as i expected but not a biggie.
Good running pram
I researched running prams for a long time before finally deciding to purchase the Mountain Buggy Terrain. It feels very sturdy and I mainly use it for jogging on roads, I also take it to the beach and walking. The Terrain doesn't push through soft sand but is fine on hard sand. I don't usually lock the front wheel in while running as I have corners that I need to turn and people to dodge, however whether the front wheel is locked or not all wheels wobble significantly when running at anything above a slow speed on a flat surface or if you are ...running down hill. It seems fine when running up hills... even using the break doesn't stop the wheels from wobbling. Additionally there is not much air flow through the pram as there are no canopies that can be rolled up or back to allow air flow through as my smaller stroller has, which means I often get a very sweaty baby out at the end of a job. I purchased the sun cover for this pram as well which works well. There are probably better prams out there for running that don't wobble so much but this would be a good pram to select if you are looking for an off roading pram. The hand brake also tends to pull the pram to one side when pressed. Sturdy and good for off roading Wheels wobble when running, lacks ventilation and becomes very hot inside, hand brake pulls pram to one side.
Great pram but not for jogging
I did a lot of research (maybe not enough) before buying this pram as I really wanted a MB and I believe they're a fantastic pram. I purchased the Terrain due to wanting to use it for jogging. Should have bought an Urban or Swift and then purchased a specific jogging pram like a BOB. As a 3-wheeler pram for going off roads when walking, it's awesome. It's got loads of fantastic features that I love but has really let me down in the jogging front. I've even had to take it into a bike store for servicing. Not recommended as a jogging pram.

Questions & Answers
How is the 5 point harness for ease of strapping in your wiggly child? I'm worried that with 4 clips to fasten, instead of 2, I will quickly grow to dislike MB.
My terrain only has two, the shoulder clips are seperate and don't need to be undone and done back up again. My second child is especially wriggly and so far so good!!
What age can you use from & until?
Baby needs to be seven months. That was one down side - but it is reasonable in my opinion due to safety concerns. Our little girl is 2 and a half nearly - she still fits very comfortably and certainly wont be too big any time soon. We still love the pram.
My husband is 6.4f and wants to use the MB for running. Is this pram suitable for someone tall and how
much weight can the MB hold? As our son is nearly 2yo.
It would be perfect for running but I would be concerned about your sons head height while sitting in the pram. I am finding the roof canopy can touch my daughters head depending on her position although you can take it off (my 16month old hates wearing a hat!). You can recline the seat to any position though which is handy. My husband is the same height and he adjusts the hand bar all the way up and finds that really comfortable. We live on a farm and find the MB really practical and tough. Hope this helps
The handle bar is adjustable so it would be perfect for all heights to run with! As for the maximum weight load it would be best to check on the MB website. I am guessing a two year old would probably be ok.
