Race Morning

Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy will again host the Bankers Trust Marathon Relay. Kinetic Edge has been a long-time race day sponsor of the relay and is glad to have the runners back this year. In 2022 they will be offering an outdoor “courtyard party” type venue for athletes to meet with their teams to connect before the event. Athletes can park in the parking lots north and west of the clinic at 516 3rd Street. The meeting area is south of the building—indoor and outdoor restrooms are available, and Gatorade and water for hydration.  The site will be open from 6:30 to 8:30 am. Join the other marathon relay teams and enjoy a fun start to race day!
