It is with heavy hearts that we're sharing the decision that there will not be a Tree Farm Relay in 2020. Many factors led to this decision: social distancing, reservations expressed by racers that it's too soon for such a social event, delays in park construction that mean it may not be available by race date, and Joe's proposed crater attire as shared on Facebook.


We are looking at the weekend of July 24th, 2021 as our next Relay.


Each preregistered team has a choice to make - we can refund your entry fees, or you can carry your team registration forward to 2021. Please share your choice with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at your convenience. 


Many of you are long time participants - thanks for sticking with us! We'll make this work next year for sure.
