Distances will include a Tooth Ridge Sprint (8 miles), Heavy Half (18 miles), Marathon and 50 Mile through the southern section of Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. All courses will finish down the iconic Tooth of Time Ridge and through the famous "You Made It!" gate in Philmont's Base Camp.
