On September 18th, an ecstatic Team ProEx crossed the finish line at Hampton Beach State Park after running 200 miles within a 24 hour time period. The 12 members of the team participated in the 2010 Reach the Beach (RTB) Relay Race, the longest distance running relay race in the United States.
The race began on Friday, September 17th, in Franconia, NH, continued through the White Mountains and finished in Hampton, NH the following day.
In addition to entering a team in the race, ProEx staff also worked the event on Saturday afternoon, providing post-race stretches to all participants and free injury screenings to those in need.
The ProEx tent was equipped with 3 treatment tables where licensed Physical Therapists worked tirelessly on the continous flow of runners interested in a stretch or an orthopedic evaluation.
Mike Mulrenan,Physical Therapist and President of ProEx was one of the first clinicians on site to provide care to the runners. “This is a great day.” said Mike, “We are so thrilled to be able to help out the community and meet some interesting people. We look forward to next year.”
