The Devil couldn't catch Clay Milford

Earlier this year I was reading Bill Kenley’s novel about cross-country running, High School Runner: Freshman. If I remember one thing about the book, it’s that early in the story the Pennsgap High cross-country team does a workout that includes a Devil-take-the-Hindmost run.

Clay Milford

We have one of those in Tallahassee, and last Saturday, July 28, Chile High senior Clay Milford won Tallahassee’s Devil-take-the-Hindmost race, the sole survivor of a field of 21 runners.


In Kenley’s book, one of his character describes how the run works. “So you can’t be last in Devil, that’s the main rule. If you’re last at the finish line, the Devil gets you. Since there are six of you guys, that means the winner and the second place finisher will run five laps each.”

2018 Devil-take-the-Hindmost
The Devil leads

The Tallahassee race wasn’t limited to just one small cross-country squad, so with 21 runners lining up on the track at 7:00 PM, the winner would have to go twenty laps. The rest would be removed one at a time, one at the end of each 400-meter lap, by the Devil.


Kat Sack was this year’s Devil, and led the runners on their first lap around the track. This was a parade lap, a free lap where no runner would be removed. After that, the Devil stepped off the track and waited for the end of the second lap to start her harvest.

The surge at the end of lap nine

Zachary Bridges and Anna Bridges ended the second lap with an Alphonse-and-Gaston routine. “I’ll be last.” “No, I’ll be last.” Tiring off their antics, the Devil took both athletes off the track.


Eight-year-old Chloe Molen left the track after the third lap, and Jennie Merchant after four laps. The remaining runners started their second mile.

Rory Claussen

Master runner Stuart Poage bowed out on lap five. The Devil nabbed Panama City master runner Neil Claussen on lap six, and Spencer Claussen after lap seven. The second mile ended with Ryan Poage going to the Devil on lap eight.


After leading most of the way, master runner Paul Guyas was taken by the Devil after nine laps. Eric Godin left the track on the tenth lap. Thirteen-year-old Rory Claussen of Panama City was the last female runner left on the track, but the Devil got her after eleven laps. Master runner Brian Molen couldn’t escape the Devil on the twelfth lap, leaving just two other master runners on the track--Duane Evans and Philip Sura. The Devil took Evans on the thirteenth lap, and Sura on the fourteenth. Only seven runners were left.

Vince Molosky

Vince Molosky was the first of the seven, leaving the track after a hard-fought fifteenth lap. That lap exhausted Matt McCurdy, the 2017 Devil-take-the-Hindmost winner, and he jogged the sixteenth lap, his run over after four miles.


“It took a year, but I got you!” chortled the Devil.

2018 Devil-take-the-Hindmost Race
Lap 17

Ryan “Weather Tiger” Truchelut went out at the end of the seventeenth lap. On the eighteenth lap the Devil snatched Jake Mazziotta, a second-year runner on the Virginia Military Institute cross-country team. Three runners were left, none of whom wanted to yield an inch. Trying to lean ahead of Bryce Cole and Clay Milford at the line, Chris O'Kelley stumbled and fell. When he looked up, the Devil was directing him off the track. The nineteenth lap was over, and so was O’Kelley’s race.


The battle on the nineteenth lap had exhausted Cole; the Embry-Riddle cross-country runner could only trot around the track on the twentieth lap while Milford galloped away from him. After five miles, the Devil got Cole, and Milford got the win.

“This is one that Jake and I have wanted to do for a lot of years,” said Milford.


The race has been going on for a lot of years. Tallahassee’s Devil-take-the-Hindmost was first run back in the 1970s. It has been almost annual since then; there have been more summers with a Devil-take-the-Hindmost than without one. It’s an unusual event, but the novelty is a welcome break from the endless summer miles. And of course there’s no more appropriate time to run with the Devil than midsummer in Tallahassee, when it’s as hot as...you know.

Tallahassee area cross country meets in 2018



2018 Tallahassee Area Cross Country Schedule

cross country
2017 3A FHSAA Boys 5K State Championship Race at ARPXC

Here's a list of cross country meets in the Tallahassee area during the upcoming 2018 season. I've limited this to middle school, high school, and college events, so you won't see open events here like the Miller Landing Madness, Run For Lawson, Pine Run, or Tannenbaum Trail 6K. I've also limited the list to Leon County and its immediate neighbors, so you'll find events here in Wakulla, Decatur, Thomas, and Jefferson counties, but nothing farther afield. As many events as I have listed here, I still might have missed one or two. If you notice that a meet is missing, let me know and I'll add it tout de suite.

Leon County Schools' 2018 middle school cross country schedule

The middle school cross-country runners of Leon County Schools will see more meets and shorter races in 2018, according to the season schedule. Here is that schedule:

The big change is that at all Leon County Schools meets, the race distance will be three kilometers instead of two miles. Three kilometers is about 219 meters shorter than two miles. Shorter isn't better, but it's in line with the middle school racing distance elsewhere--notably, the FLYRA Florida Middle School State Cross-Country Championship and the B3R Sports Florida Youth Cross-Country Championship. The other change is that the schedule is being expanded to six meets. The new event is the Falcon Invitational, scheduled for Thursday evening, 4 October 2018, at Fairview Middle School. The middle school season was extended to five meets in 2015 with the addition of a season opener on the Apalachee Regional Park Cross-Country Course (ARPXC). However, that opening event was rained out in 2015, and canceled due to hurricane damage in 2016, so 2017 was the only year that Leon County Schools actually ran five middle school cross-country meets.


Outside of Leon County Schools, Holy Comforter Episcopal School is again hosting two middle school cross-country meets--the Crusader Cross-Country Classic on Thursday afternoon, 20 September 2018, and the Tallahassee Middle School Open on Thursday afternoon, 11 October 2018. Both meets open with an elementary school mile. The middle school races at Holy Comforter are three kilometers, by the way, and always have been.


There is also a three-kilometer race open to middle school athletes at Gulf Winds Track Club's Miller Landing Madness (18 August 2018), a middle school 3K at the Cougar Cross-Country Challenge in Phipps Park (25 August 2018), a three-kilometer middle school race at the second annual Big Bend Cross-Country Invitational at ARPXC (1 September 2018), a middle school two-mile at the Bearcat Invitational at Bainbridge (Georgia) High School (15 September 2018), and a middle school 3K at the Florida State University Cross-Country Invitational (12 October 2018). There's no shortage of races for Tallahassee's middle school cross-country runners in 2018. If anything, there's a danger of over-racing.

Tallahassee Community College Eagles 2018 Cross-Country Schedule

Cross-country season has gone from months away to weeks away, and it is about to go from weeks away to days away. With competition about to start, Tallahassee Community College has released the Eagles' 2018 cross-country schedule.


The Eagles have five meets right in Tallahassee starting with their opener, the Cougar Cross-Country Challenge in Phipps Park on Friday evening, 24 August 2018. After that, TCC's harriers visit Valdosta, Georgia for the first time, running in the Valdosta State University Border Clash at Freedom Park on Friday, 31 August 2018. The Eagles are on the road again a week later on 7 September 2018, making their first appearance at the University of North Florida Invitational in Jacksonville, Florida.


Returning to Tallahassee, the Eagles will race at Gulf Winds Track Club's Salute to Prefontaine 5K on Saturday, 15 September 2018. In October, TCC will compete three times at Florida's premiere venue, the Apalachee Regional Park Championship Cross-Country Course, racing at the FSU Cross-Country Invitational on 12 October 2018, the inaugural TCC Eagle Invitational on 19 October 2018, and the FCSAA Cross-Country Championships on 26 October 2018.


Post-season championships open with the FCSAA meet, and continue on 10 November 2018 with the NJCAA-D1 National Cross-Country Championships at Garden City, Kansas--marking the sixth year in a row that the national meet has been held west of the Mississippi River. The following week, on 17 November 2018, is the NJCAA Half-Marathon championship, which returns to Gulf Shores, Alabama this year.


Here's the 2018 cross-country schedule for the Tallahassee Community College Eagles:
