People keep showing up, so we keep putting it on!! Our 2013 race was another HUGE success with almost 125 teams taking turns racing around the Tree Farm. We are hard at work planning the 2014 race, and we expect to have more fun, more surprises… and hopefully great weather!!!
We changed the start of the Sport class last year to ease up congestion, and it worked great so we’ll do it again. Plus, we are officially changing the “Other” category into a Costume category. It will be the same distance as all Sport classes, but a time bonus will be rewarded for the best costumes. You don’t have to finish first to get first place!!!
Get ready for the 9th Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA and Team Tree Farm. 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. If you want to try an endurance race, but aren’t ready for the distance, this is the perfect event for you to see what the team racing concept is all about.
