Lakeshore Park: 601 South Lake Drive, Novi, United States
Get ready for the 14th Anniversary Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA and Team Tree Farm. 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.
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! 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. Things will be a bit different this year. We will be using 12.5 Mile and Dixon Roads as our parking area, which the city has graciously offered to close down for the day. This should give us plenty of room for parking. We will then be 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.
