Cains Quest 2016
- February 05, 2016
Cain’s Quest 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, Canada. Racers must brave sub-zero cold, poor visibility, and deep snow; pushing their snowmobiles and bodies to the limits in order to reach the finish line. Cain’s Quest is a true test of racer and machine
The pro class racers will now depart Labrador West at 6:00 p.m. on March 4th. They will then head to Happy Valley-Goose Bay before starting their north coast journey to Nain. From there, racers will travel to the south coast to L’Anse Au Loup before making their way back to the finish line in Labrador West through central Labrador, completing a full Labrador circuit, passing through a total of 19 checkpoints at Churchill Falls, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Postville, Natuashish, Nain, Hopedale, Makkovik, Rigolet, Cartwright, Port Hope Simpson, Mary's Harbour, L'Anse Au Loup, North West River/Sheshatshiu, Churchill Falls and finishes in Labrador City, with other non-community checkpoints in between by the finish the racers will have covered an estimated 3,500 kilometres.
The ambitious route will continue to give Cain’s Quest bragging rights as the world’s longest and toughest snowmobile endurance race. It is, as in past races, subject to change depending on environmental circumstances like weather or snow conditions.
Each team will have one of our trackers installed before crossing the starting line. This allows friends, family and the race organisers to follow their progress with the tracking data updating every ten minutes.
