2008 Tree Farm Relay This Saturday!

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MMBA, Team Tree Farm and Dark Horse Racing. This is the same format as our successful 2006 and 2007 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.

Janet Wins Again at the Boyne Marathon!

Here's her race report:

'BOYNE....just hearing it intimidates me.. I awoke at 3:30am the morning of the rac e to the sound of rain. Crap. Boyne is difficult enough without being wet and muddy too. As luck would have it, the weatherman was wrong, and it had hardly rained at Boyne. It started out cloudy, but the sun came out, the wind picked up a bit and it was a beautiful day for a race. I really wanted to just finish this, as last year I had DNF'd. The course was in great condition, rooty, rather technical and big climbs as usual. I got passed once by another girl in my class. I stayed right with her, and then she had what appeared to be a nasty crash right in front of me. She got up, was OK, so I was on my way and did not see her or any other women after that. My goal was to finish in under 4 hours and I did 3:53. So I accomplished 3 things - I finished, I won and I was under my goal time. Apparently Boyne is not as intimidating as it sounds '

Congrats, Janet -- and Happy Birthday, too!!!!
