THE PILOT EVENT
OFF TO AN EXCITING START
15 teams raced from Labrador City to Churchill Falls and return. This 1200 km race would set the stage for what would quickly become the longest race of its kind in Canada. In its inaugural year, Cain’s Quest attracted 3 teams from Quebec, 10 from the Labrador City/Wabush, 1 from Goose Bay, and 1 from Forteau/L’anse au Loup area. These registration numbers were indicative of what the race would become. It quickly became obvious that there was a huge appetite for this type of extreme sport. The race went off beautifully. Racers were transmitting satellite signals along the route on our website and cainsquest.com was on overload. Hits from all over Canada and the United States proved that this race was something to watch for. The race was ever changing right to the finish when the winning team seemed to come out of nowhere. Now that’s action!
