Suggestions on a good jogging stroller for my 6 year old

I'm starting to get back into jogging. I run 2 times a week when the boys are with their dad. I'd like to run 3 or 4 times.

My 7 y/o can bike along with me but my 6 y/o is my severely autistic son and he can't ride a bike yet. He can scooter a bit but it is way slower than if he just walked.

My 6 y/o weighs around 55 pounds.

I had a bike trailer that doubled as a jogger but I handed it down to my brother that had twins. It would be able to hold 55 pounds but I really didn't like jogging with it.

Most single joggers I've found don't go up to his weight.

Costco had a really really nice looking jogger/bike trailer the other day when I went for about $200.

You probably need a special needs stroller but they are $$$. I wonder if insurance would pay for it?

I hadn't seen special needs strollers that look like those, they are awesome. I'm not sure if we would qualify but I will look. He's a runner so I have that going for me but he's not in any sort of PT which would probably help the recommendation. I will have to call my insurance company and see what they say.
