Nobody thought Mat Pritchard would survive into his 40s. Now, Wales’s favourite party boy and dare devil star of TV’s Dirty Sanchez has cleaned up his life and turned ultra-endurance athlete.
To prove it- to himself more than anyone else- he is about to take on his biggest endurance challenge yet. He’s turning the coastline, and the border of Wales into one enormous triathlon route in celebration of five years since the day he turned his life around. His aim is to be the first person to swim, cycle, and run around the beautiful country he calls home… and to do it in just 14 days. If he can stay on schedule, battling fatigue, the weather, and illness, he aims to finish this epic journey by running the Cardiff Half Marathon.
But for Matt, this is not just an endurance challenge, it is a journey of self-discovery. Wild Man to Ironman is Mat’s story, from rags, to riches, to ruin, and redemption.
