Darin Powell is a long-standing member of Team Texarkana. His first triathlon was the Four States Triathlon in 1997.
Darin is credited for the name T3 which graces our team logo.
Darin is a former cross country and track star. He attended Slippery Rock University and unlike his alma mater’s name, there is nothing slippery about him. The term ‘consistent ‘comes to mind as Darin excels in the swim, bike, and run.
He races every event from the 800 meter to marathon distance – he has a PR in the mile with a blazing time of 4:17.
Darin is soft spoken but don’t let that quiet demeanor fool you. On the race course he is unrelenting.
He is a two time Ironman finisher (Louisville 2007 and Arizona 2009), earning him the title ‘Ironman Powell’.
