The Un"fur"gettable Hudson Bay Quest

News Release provided by Hudson Bay Quest Organizing Committee 3/6/07

  

Fourteen racers, including the last of the traditional Inuit musher’s leave Arviat, Nunavut and head towards Churchill Manitoba, Canada’s Polar Bear Capital of the world, under the watchful eyes of the Canadian Rangers, on March 24th, 2007 at 8:30 am.  The race purse has been set at $25,000.

The Hudson Bay Quest embodies those few die-hard musher’s who refuse to say good-bye to their history, culture and heritage without a fight. Racers from Saskatchewan and Quebec will be joining the quest this year.  Snowmobiles & four-wheel drive have replaced “Fur-Wheel” drive in Northern Canada and in doing so an important part of Canadian history is at risk of disappearing along with the polar bears and melting ice-caps.

Last year, musher’s encountered polar bears, wolves, traditional Inuit hunters & thousands of migrating caribou along the race trail.  Thanks to “Global Warming” sections of the race trail had musher’s traveling through a foot of water one minute then braving blizzards packing brutal winds and sub-zero temperatures the next.

For more information regarding the Hudson Bay Quest please contact:
