Devil Takes the Hindmost

22/12/2011

On Thursday, 20 Club runners decided to try a change of running surface and swapped the tarmac for the track...

As a variation to training, club members took part in a 'Devil takes the hindmost' track session at the David Keswick Centre. The format for the session was for a group warm up followed by the main feature. In this, the bunch circulated the track together for a mile and thereafter the last person to cross the line at the end of each lap would be picked off by the 'devil' and drop out. As the session progressed, the numbers dwindled and the pace increased, with the sprints becoming ever more keenly contested. In the end it was David Parrish and Steven Smith who fought out the final dash for the line with David being the one to evade the devil's clutches. The session concluded with a 4 x 4 team variation of a 'sprint medley' with the format being 800m followed by 400m then 2 x 200m legs. This fun race proved to be quite competitive and unmasked Steve Mohan and Adam Dickie as having kept quiet about some hidden sprint talent. Judging by the smiles, the session was enjoyed by all (perhaps also due to Christmas elf Margaret handing out festive chocolates!) and could be one to repeat in the future.
