Tree Farm Relay - Thanks!

Thanks to our 117 teams who participated in this year's Tree Farm Relay! The rain held off for most of the day and the course was buffed and polished by dozens of volunteers over the past week.

Results are available on the Race Services website, and photos have been posted by participating teams on FB and the MMBA board.

Next up: Maybury!

8th annual Tree Farm Relay on Saturday, July 27!!!

Prepare yourself for the 8th Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA, Team 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.



Start planning your teams, planning your costumes and get ready for the coolest race around!

Rain, rain, rain...

We recently added a "local weather" link for each trail in our chapter trail guide. These links point to the closest weather underground site - sometimes only a mile away from the trail. All of these have rain gauges so we can see graphs of how much rain hit the trails and when.

Kind of useful on a rainy day...
