Notable elements of the program include fostering motivation, establishing personal boundaries, and particularly catering to the needs of prospective and new parents, often from affluent backgrounds, who are seeking healthier lifestyle alternatives.
Carl Wakeford founded Stride & Glory drawing from his own experiences of stress in the corporate world as a chartered accountant. The coaching team, consisting of professionals with experience in both corporate environments and elite military settings, is adept at managing the rigours of high-pressure situations. Wakeford’s personal journey of overcoming low self-esteem to develop resilience via marathon training mirrors the ethos of Stride & Glory. His experience as a caregiver for a quadriplegic has further shaped the program, emphasising self-assurance, mental strength, and physical endurance as key to facing life’s obstacles.
Stride & Glory’s effectiveness is highlighted by its exceptional reputation, boasting 69 5-star reviews on Trustpilot and a 99% 5-star success rate. The program has been honored with prestigious awards, including the Community Impact Award in the Health and Wellbeing category at the UK Business Awards, reflecting its profound impact on participants’ lives.

Carl Wakeford remarks: “At the heart of Stride & Glory’s philosophy is the belief that anyone can run a marathon and build resilience with the right support and guidance. Our program challenges the perception that marathons are inaccessible feats, emphasising that crossing the finish line is a testament to the strength and character of the individual. We are proud of the sizeable shift in client achievements we see following our mentorship.”
