Tallahassee's 2013 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Run

2013 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Run

Saturday, 20 July 2013 @ 7:00 PM ET

Florida State University's Mike Long Track

Chieftain Way and Spirit Way, Tallahassee, Florida

Tallahassee's Devil-take-the-Hindmost run returns on Saturday evening, 20 July 2013 at 7:00 PM ET on the Mike Long Track. This will be the third straight year. Has this become an annual event again? Only the Devil knows, and the Devil is not talking.

The Devil has changed the rules this year, which is just what you'd expect from the Devil. There is a two-minute limit on each lap. You must finish the lap before the two minutes are up, and you can't start the next lap until the two minutes are up. At the end of each lap, the Devil will take his due, removing the last runner from the track, plus anyone who didn't complete the lap in two minutes. The clock will be run by the Devil's handyman, Bill Lott. The first lap will start at 0:00, the second at 2:00, the third at 4:00, and so on.

As before, the run continues until one runner is left on the track. The winner? Of course not! The Devil always wins.

No T-shirt. No entry fee. No whining. Show up on the starting line, and register when the Devil takes you. Spectators welcome. Refreshments will be neither served nor sold, so pack accordingly.
