Milford's Labor Day 30 K Festival of Races Stampede from the Milford Times, who deserves credit for any lack of specificity here:

  • 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1, Fat Tire Bid Ride
  • 30K Fat Tire Bike Ride at 7:30 a.m. $25,
  • 10-mile or 50-mile Inline Skate at 8 a.m. 7:45 a.m. [time per slacker below...advice per roadskater, be early or be squirrelly] $25,
  • 30K race at 8 a.m. $32,
  • 10K race/run/fun walk at 8:30 a.m. $25
  • 1/2-mile kids fun run at 11:15 a.m. $10.
  • Registration fees go up after Aug. 25.
  • At Bakers of Milford, with post race festivities. 
  • Proceeds to healthful causes.

Hope this helps. It's very near Novi and Farmington it seems!

I believe the actual start

I believe the actual start time is 7:45. (And allow some time for check-in.)

Vicki Mango is the skater working with the organizers.

Hey Slacker Any More Info on the Milford Inline Skate Race?

Yo slacker, I hate to ask anyone with that name to do anything, but I know you are way not the slacker when it comes to skating, so do you have any more details on the Milford Skate? Will you be there? Will other T2T folk be there? Please let Vicki know we'd love to have her tell us more as well. Thanks! And it's OK if you let this slide of course. Skateylove all y'all Michiskaters.

More info on Milford Inline Skate event

Hi Blake, here's some more info. Note that it's not a race, just an organized skate. I expect to be there and I'm sure some of the MI folks who've been at T2T will also be skating.

Online registration is here: https://www.signmeup.com/site/reg/register.aspx?fid=0J2VJK7

Registration/start is at "Baker's of Milford Restaurant" - 2055 S. Milford Rd, Milford, MI (Across from Kensington Metro Park Milford entrance.)

I was told the skate would start at 7:45am (between the mountain bikers and the runners), although the article you cited said 8:00 am. I believe that 7:45 is more likely to be true. You'll want to allow some extra time to check in/register - there will be quite a few runners milling around.I think we'll basically do the same route as last year, which ended up at about 42 miles or so. As I said, it's not a race, although some like to go fast. I imagine we'll do something like last year where we periodically stopped to regroup. (So, basically a medium-paced social skate.)


Almost all of the skating is on multi-use paths. (For those who know the SE Michigan paths, the long skate is Baker's -> through Kensington Metropark -> Island Lake park -> Wixom -> South Lyon -> Kensington -> Baker's. The short skate loops around Kensington.) The route has some moderate hills.

There will be a couple of water+bananas stops along the way. There's also apparently food and drink afterwards (I didn't have time to stick around last year).
