Q. Where did the name Cain’s Quest come from?
A. Following the story of one of Jacques Cartier’s famous expeditions to North America, Cain’s Quest came from a reference that Cartier made to the harsh landscape. He referred to the coast of Labrador as “The land God gave to Cain”. From this story and the vision of the race, Cain’s Quest was born. This name represents the adventure the race promises to be and captures the essence of the land that hosts it.
“We are thrilled that Nunatsiavut has come on board as a major sponsor for the 2014 race,” said Todd Kent, chair of Cain’s Quest Inc. “We have a longstanding relationship with them and the Cain’s Quest route has travelled through their territory on the north coast for many years. We not only appreciate their sponsorship but greatly value the level of volunteerism and enthusiasm from the communities involved in the race.”
Cain’s Quest Inc. is pleased to welcome the Iron Ore Company of Canada as a diamond sponsor of the 2014 race.
“IOC has supported Cain’s Quest since day one. We are incredibly grateful for their ongoing support; they continue to be an essential part of our success,” said Todd Kent, chair of Cain’s Quest Inc.
