I love running. It’s something that when you can’t do it, you realise very quickly how much you miss it. 

Through injury, having a 3-year-old and trying to launch a new business, time spent out pounding the streets has been non-existent! 

I really wanted to create something different to act as motivation and inspiration not just me, but as many people as possible to either get into or get back into running. 

We’re so excited to partner with Welsh Athletics, RunWales and Llandaff Rugby Club to welcome Mr 50/50 himself, double brutal finishing, and all-round inspiration Matthew Pritchard to the clubhouse on Wednesday 12th October. 

Secure your place here!

Matt is a Welsh professional skateboarder, stunt performer, and celebrity chef. He regularly appeared on Dirty Sanchez, Wrecked, and Balls of Steel. In 2019, he hosted the first BBC vegan cookery show, Dirty Vegan. He authored two cookbooks: Dirty Vegan and Dirty Vegan: Another Bite.

After a lively start to his life in the limelight, Matt was faced with some of the negative aspects of celebrity and the mental health challenges that can often follow. Matt has since gone on to become an accomplished ultra-endurance athlete in his own right. Some of his key achievements include cycling John O’Groats to Land’s End, running John O’Groats to Land’s End, swimming Britain’s biggest lake – Lake Windamere, completing 30 x Half Ironmans in 30-days and completing 10 x full Ironmans in 10-days.

We’re doing something a little different than just your average ‘Evening with’. 

As part of the ticket price, you will have the opportunity to join a run with Matt himself on that evening. It will be a 5km run around Bute Park, led by qualified Welsh Athletics leaders and the run is NOT compulsory by any means!

Event details:

  • Event doors open at 530pm 
  • For those that intend to join the run, please be at the venue by 545pm Run through Bute Park starts at 6pm Shower, change of kit and refreshments 630pm to 730pm 
  • Evening begins at 730pm with a talk and presentation from Matt, as-well as questions & answers from the audience.

With a month to go, I better start stretching!
