Labrador City, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR – The staff and Board of Directors of Cain’s Quest are pleased to announce confirmation that the 2024 race is going ahead as planned.

At this time, we wish to extend an invitation to the media to join us in Labrador for our 12th race in March of 2024.

This year will see teams from across the province, Quebec, and as far away as BC and Maine, participate in the longest, toughest snowmobile race in the world. Media are welcome to attend and cover the event in its entirety. 

Teams will check in on Feb. 28, participate in a Fan Night event at the Labrador City Arena on Feb. 29, allowing the community to meet and greet racers. The opening ceremonies will be held on March 1, with the race start on March 3 at Tanya Lake. After the race, the awards ceremony will be held March 10 at the Arts and Culture Centre in Labrador City. 

“Cain’s Quest’s board and staff have been in continuous contact with racers, local search and rescue personnel, and trusted local observers to ensure conditions are appropriate for a truly exhilarating race,” says board chair Chris Lacey. “We are confident this year’s race will be an intense and fun ride for racers, volunteers, and fans alike.”

Media are asked if planning to attend all or part of Cain’s Quest, to reach out to our team or visit our website for resources on planning your stay in Labrador. Our first-class hospitality will keep you warm, while covering one of the most grueling snowmobile races in the world. 

In addition, while press access can be provided at various locations throughout the race, the Cain’s Quest team can also provide resources such as video and photos for use. Our team would be pleased to discuss your needs. 

About Cain’s Quest: Cain’s Quest snowmobile endurance race is one of the most extreme winter races in the world. This high-energy race began in 2006, and sees teams of two snowmobilers traverse more than 3,500 km of rough, all-natural terrain and hitting mandatory checkpoints along the way. The name Cain’s Quest comes from Jacques Cartier’s famous expedition in which he described Labrador as “The land God gave to Cain.”
