"to the marker" is an adverbial phrase.

My bad... It's an adverbial prepositional phrase... You're right!

Yes, to the marker (guessing that should have been market) is a prepositional phrase that functions as an adverbial in the sentence, but Abi, you were right to begin with; it's still an element of the predicate, even while the verb phrase is going is the predicate's sine qua non
