FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION FOR 2018 CAIN’S QUEST
SNOWMOBILE ENDURANCE RACE TO OPEN APRIL 15, 2017
Labrador City, NL, April 15, 2017 – Cain’s Quest Inc. today started accepting early bird registrations for the 2018 Cain’s Quest Snowmobile Endurance Race. Racing teams that register by May 15, 2017 will be entered into a draw for one free team registration, valued at $6,500 plus HST.
“A break on registration fees will be a significant help to teams, who sometimes spend well over $30,000 to compete,” said Glenn Emberley, chair of Cain’s Quest Inc.
The race kicks off in Labrador West on Friday, March 2, 2018 and brings racers, who travel in teams of two, through numerous checkpoints covering central Labrador and both the north and south coasts before heading back to the finish line in Labrador West.
“Racers can again expect a grueling race as they navigate through rough, ungroomed terrain while battling extreme temperatures that could dip below -40 degrees Celsius that time of year,” said Glenn.
The prize purse will remain at $100,000, with the teams competing for a first place prize of $50,000. The second place prize is $30,000 and third place is $20,000.
Cain’s Quest is the world’s toughest and longest snowmobile endurance race. It is an incredible off-trail riding adventure where teams of two battle in an all-out race through deep snow and thick wooded areas in some of the most remote parts of Labrador. The race is managed by Cain’s Quest Inc., a volunteer-run, non-profit organization.
