For the fourth consecutive year, Alpine Physical Therapy was fully staffed to provide post-race massages to all willing participants of the 2010 Missoula Marathon.
Knowing that Missoula was deemed by Runner’s World as the top marathon destination of 2010, we were in full force for the event. We new the numbers would be big, hovering around 5,000 people. Therefore, we had 5 support staff members, 10 physical therapists, and 2 massage therapists ready and able to do massages from 7AM to 2 PM on race day Sunday.
You know you’re making a difference when a runner falls asleep during the massage! And the feedback we received confirmed the benefits of our efforts.
Knowing that a picture tells a 1,000 words, I’ll include a few pictures of the post-race event here.
