Victory For Powell Brothers

On the weekend of 28/29th October Ifor Powell (BOK) and his brother Alun achieved victory in the ultimate UK Mountain Marathon Challenge. They won the OMM (formally KIMM) Elite competition held in the Galloway Forest, Scotland.

This was the final feather in the cap for Ifor, having previously won the LAMM, Saunders, Capricorn, Swiss KIMM, World Mountain Marathon Championships and the Mountain Trial. In his words 'I can retire happy now'.

Overall the pair won by 25 minutes, a large margin considering the quality of the field at the event. However, maybe the terrain of bogs and tussocks suited the long legs of the brothers, although crossing one of the flooded rivers did also allow Ifor to test his swimming skills.

This is an excellent achievement and anyone who knows Ifor will know that he deserves this considering the time and effort he has put into his training over a long period of time.
