The 208 Mile Ed Tom Bell is named after the character in the book. Ed is a laconic, soon-to-retire county sheriff on the trail of Chigurh.
The route was first raced in 2013. It will take racers through historic Ft. Davis, up Wild Rose Pass, the infamous Boy Scout Road, McDonald's Observatory Loop, Marfa and back to Alpine.
Final route books will be issued at pre-race meeting.
