Tree Farm Relay Invitational

It’s back! As some of you may have heard, the front area of Lakeshore Park may be closed for a significant part of the summer, but don’t worry! The city of Novi is making some fantastic upgrades to the park, including several features that will be cycling friendly! There have been rumors that we would be skipping the Relay in 2019, but that is not the case. After some serious brainstorming with our friends in the Novi Parks Department, we have come up with a solution to keep this race on the calendar. We will be using 12.5 Mile and Dixon Roads as our parking area, staging the race from the Pump Track area of the park.

However, these changes are going to make us have to downsize the field. As of right now we are going to open up registration to 50 teams. Therefore we will be calling this year’s race the “2019 Tree Farm Relay Invitational”. But, It’s not really an invitational, as we aren’t hand-picking teams… we just wanted it to sound super classy! Yes, that is less than half the size of the normal field, but don’t worry, it’ll still be the same fun, crazy race that you have all come to love.

So, get your teams together and get ready to sign up for the 2019 Tree Farm Relay Invitational. It’ll be different this year, but you can expect a lot of fun and surprises.

Registration is open, and will fill fast - Don’t miss out on this exclusive event!
