Yes, due to popular demand, it’s back and better than ever!! Our 2012 race was another HUGE success with 125 teams taking turns racing around the Tree Farm. We are hard at work planning the 2013 race, and we expect to have more fun, more surprises… and hopefully great weather!!!
We are shaking things up this year by adjusting the start of the Sport class to help with the initial congestion on the trail. Plus, we are adding a mysterious “Other” category. Stay tuned for details on that…. maybe!
Get ready for the 8th Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA, Team Tree Farm and Dark Horse Racing. This is the same format you have all grown to love… a unique 4-person team relay race! The course features lots of hills, passing zones and fun! This is a perfect race for the beginner looking to see what team / endurance racing is all about and for experienced racers looking to test their skills against rival teams.
