Terry 'Nicks' Devil title

06/02/2014

On Thursday 6th, the David Keswick Centre played host to the 2014 edition of DRC's 'Devil takes the hindmost' with well over 30 club members turning up to compete or to lend support to those trying to evade the clutches of the 'devil'...

This year, the format was for everyone to get settled in and warmed up for the main showdown by lapping the track in the footsteps of event pacers Bob and Jo for a mile. After this the 'Devil' started to "take the hindmost", with the last person across the finish line on each lap dropping out. The only real rule was that runners had to stay behind the pacers until a designated point whereupon they could overtake and make their dash for the safety of the finish line.

As the event progressed the numbers dwindled and the excitement increased with the race for the line on each lap becoming ever more competitive. In the end only Terry McCloskey and Richard Beck remained to fight out the final lap. Once free of the pacer both launched themselves into a final sprint and with Richard chasing him all the way to the line it was Terry who crossed first to take the 2014 'Devil takes the hindmost' title.

The fun evening was rounded off by 5 teams of 4 contesting a 'medley relay' consisting of legs of 400m followed by 200m then 2 x 100m.
