Another successful Tree Farm Relay in the books!

The 8th Annual Tree Farm Relay was another fun race day with two 4-person Dark Horse teams getting on the podium in 2nd and 3rd place in the Sport Women's class.  Best of all, we got to help raise money for our local mountain bike trails while having tons o' fun!  Best race of the year!

Tree Farm Relay 2013 - Saturday July 27!!

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 MCMBATeam 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. 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.
