Cain’s Quest Snowmobile Endurance Race has been described as the ultimate in extreme racing. At 3500km of high energy racing in 2016, this race is the longest race of its kind in the world and promises to keep race fans on the edge of their seat. Cain’s Quest is a true northern adventure that gives racers the experience of a life time. Racers push body and machine to the limits in an all out race to the finish for a shot at a hefty prize purse. Teams of two leave the start line pumped with adrenaline and an eye on the prize. Some, with a “take no prisoners” attitude, may quickly learn that when the going gets tough, sportsmanship and help from a competing team is often what it takes to make it through. The race runs day and night guided by GPS and gut instinct to get teams from checkpoint to checkpoint. This event requires a solid strategy, top gun riding skills, the will to keep going, a tough, dependable snowmobile, and a whole lot of luck!
A Global Experience
Cain’s Quest brings the race into the homes of race fans and snowmobile enthusiasts across the globe. Each team is equipped with a satellite tracking unit which enables visitors to log onto our website and watch the race in near real time. Not only is this an added safety feature for the teams, but it allows race followers to cheer on their favorite teams and watch the race changing from moment to moment.
Teams will travel through a variety of topography, deep snow, thick wooded areas, and wide open frozen lakes. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. Teams must make it through each checkpoint and stop at mandatory layover points in various communities along the way. Not everyone who leaves the start line will cross the finish line.
An Incredible Commitment
An event of this magnitude is two years in the making. The organization is top notch and is only possible with solid partnerships with government, industry, tourism stakeholders, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Cain’s Quest relies heavily on corporate sponsorship and a strong volunteer base. Throughout the year, the Cain’s Quest Board of Directors works tirelessly on realizing this event. It takes effective marketing, strong financial backing, and a lot of logistics work to make Cain’s Quest such an extreme success from year to year. During race week, communities across Labrador are lending a hand with volunteers manning checkpoints, headquarters, communications, and everything in between. Cain’s Quest is a world class sporting event that is attracting international attention from media, participants and visitors to our website. For action, excitement, and a whole lot of intensity, Cain’s Quest is the premier Snowmobile Race to watch for.
