Hoof-It

Come Support the CCETS!
Join us for our THIRD year of trail running in Boutwell Hill State Forest!
Hoof It on the Hill is a fundraising trail race for the Chautauqua County Equestrian Trail System. It utilizes portions of the horse trails, the Earl Cardot Eastside Overland Trail, snowmobile trail and some forest roads.

CCETS is maintained by a group of volunteers dedicated to the growth and management of the horse trail systems in Chautauqua County, New York. They work to enhance and maintain the trails for sustainability for public use on state, county, town and private lands. The trails are also used by hikers, bikers, trail runners, birders, dog walkers, cross country skiers and more!

Trail Description
You will run through pine and hardwood forests, meadows, across creeks and streams, and up and down a few steep hills. Expect to get wet and muddy – this is a trail run, after all! There are some sections of forest road, some single track/technical trail, and some double track/snowmobile trail. The 52k is the 26k loop twice. The 26k and 52k distances have a short stretch of asphalt road.

There will be no aid stations for the 6k, one water stop for the 12k, two aid stations plus two water stops for the 26k loop, plus aid at the start/finish area for those doing two loops. Aid stations will have water, sports/electrolyte drink and typical ultra food (pb&j, m&ms, pretzels, pickles, cookies, fruit, chips, etc.).

Elevation gain:
6k – ~300’
12k – ~630’
26k – ~1300’
52k – ~2600’

Crews are allowed at the Start/Finish (Ruttenbur Aid Station for 52k) and at the Boutwell Hill Aid Station (26k and 52k only). Drop bags will also be allowed at Boutwell Hill AS for 26k and 52k runners.

Cancellation Policy
There will be NO refunds, deferrals (other than pregnancy deferrals – see below), credits, transfers or waitlists for any race distance. Should the race director need to cancel the race for ANY reason, including but not limited to: severe weather, DEC permit changes, or a change in the pandemic situation, she will alert runners as soon as possible. All entries will be deferred to the following year. If YOU cancel or no show, your registration fee will be considered a donation to the CCETS, Inc. If you sign up for one distance, but decide you want to run a different distance, you will still pay the higher distance’s registration fee.

Pregnancy Deferral – NEW for 2024!
If you become pregnant after registering, or have just had a baby (and your body isn’t in a place you feel comfortable racing yet), we are happy to defer your entry to the following year. Please just let us know by April 1st, if you’d like to defer.
