Tallahassee's 2019 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Run


2019 Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Run

Florida State University's Mike Long Track

Chieftain Way and Spirit Way, Tallahassee, Florida



We all learn from our mistakes. Of course, sometimes we only learn what they look like. "Wow! I did that again!" Tallahassee's Devil-Take-The-Hindmost Run is that kind of mistake.


The first Devil-Take-The-Hindmost in Tallahassee was back in the 1970s. You'd think we'd know better after that. Instead, we kept doing it again, year after year. There was actually a seven-year stretch after 2004 where there was no Devil-Take-The-Hindmost, but the run inexplicably returned in 2011. Instead of abandoning the event entirely, the rules were occasionally refined in hopes of making the race less miserable. That hope was not realized. Since 2013, these have been the rules:
  • 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.
  • The first lap will start at 0:00, the second at 2:00, the third at 4:00, and so on.
  • 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 run continues until one runner is left on the track.
Oh, and before the first lap, there is a "lap zero" where the only rule is that you must stay behind the Devil. No one gets to leave the track on that lap; casualties and the clock start on the next lap.


Who wins? The Devil, of course. The Devil's own far-from-idle hand, Bill Lott, will keep time.


No entry fee. No T-shirt. No finisher medals. No personalized race bibs. You enter by showing up on the starting line, and you register when the Devil gets you (and the Devil will). Spectators are welcome, but are reminded that it's poor form to say that they wish they had participated instead. Participants are reminded that it's poor form to say they wish they had watched instead. Refreshments? As they say in River City, Iowa, "You can eat your fill of all the food you bring yourself."


Questions? Post them below! The Devil may answer. You may even like the answer. Don't bet on it.

Alec Munger and Sandra Griffin take the cake at the Bun Run

Bun RunFor distance runners, the mantra in July is, "Get Ready For Cross-Country Season." On Saturday morning, 20 July 2019, Lowndes High rising junior Alec Munger showed that if he isn't ready for cross-country, he is well along in his preparations. That morning, Munger won the tenth annual Break Bread Bun Run 5K in Valdosta, Georgia by more than 300 meters, running 17:51. Valdosta master runner Sandra Griffin was the first woman in the race, placing thirteenth overall in 22:53.


It was Munger's second straight Bun Run win and nearly a minute faster than his winning time in the 2018 race. Fourteen-year-old Aaron Munger took the runner-up spot in the 5K, running 19:03. An incoming frosh at Lowndes High, Aaron will be joining his brother Alec on Viking cross-country team. A few steps behind the younger Munger, a pair of master runners battled for third, Myles Gibson and Ryan Kelly. Kelly, from Lake Park, Georgia, had won the Bun Run in 2013 and 2014, as well as finishing ahead of Gibson in the 2018 race. Kelly had also outrun Gibson a week earlier to win the eleventh annual Barnes 5K. This time out, though, Gibson won their duel. The Donalsonville, Georgia athlete went 19:0-8 to take third place and the top master spot with a 19:08. Kelly was fourth in 19:19.


Alexandra Sayre, a rising senior on the Lowndes High cross-country team, took second in the women's standings and fifteenth overall in 23:14. Sayre had also been the women's runner-up in the 2018 Bun Run. Another rising senior, Valdosta High harrier Katelyn Lancaster, was the third woman and seventeenth overall in 24:43. Master runner Martha Mazurkiewicz, a Lowndes High cross-country coach, was the fourth female finisher and eighteenth overall in 25:00.


76 athletes finished the 2019 Break Bread Bun Run 5K. A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta timed the race and provided finish line services.

Micheal Niezgoda and Ann Centner provided the fireworks at the Firecracker 5K

If you've been around Tallahassee, Florida long enough, you may remember going to Lake Ella on Independence Day for the fireworks. Since then the show has moved to Tom Brown Park. But starting in 2014, the Independence Day destination for Tallahassee runners is a morning appointment at Cascades Park to race the Capital City Kiwanis' Firecracker 5K. Michael Niezgoda kept that Thursday morning, 4 July 2019, appointment in a big way, winning the race in 17:43. Ann Centner was the first woman across the finish line, placing fourth overall in 18:03.

Michael Niezgoda

It was the 37th annual Firecracker 5K. For thirty years, from 1983 to 2012, the Greensboro, Florida Kiwanis Club hosted the Firecracker 5K in Gadsden County on a course that ran from Sycamore to Greensboro. After inheriting the race in 2013, the Capital City Kiwanis Club staged the race in Phipps Park for a year before moving downtown to Cascades Park. That was where the 2019 Firecracker started at 8:00 AM. Trevor Sununu set the early pace for the field, but he didn't have much time to enjoy the lead before Niezgoda took over.


"It was right in front of the Edison, about three-fourths of a mile," said Niezgoda. "Trevor kept surging during the first mile, trying to keep ahead of me. But I could tell the pace was slowing. So I had to get by him."

Trevor Sununu

Once past Sununu, Niezgoda pulled steadily away, opening a gap of 70 meters during the second mile. During the third mile Zach DeVeau overtook Sununu and began to narrow Niezgoda's lead. But Niezgoda was still more than 50 meters ahead when he crossed the finish line in a winning 17:43. DeVeau took second in 17:54, and Sununu was third in 17:58. Tallahassee Community College cross-country coach Gary Droze was the first master runner in the race, finishing fifth overall in 18:25. Master runner Michael Martinez was able to keep Coach Droze in sight throughout the race, but only to see the Coach pull farther ahead. Martinez was the second master and sixth overall in 18:38.


"I live right here in Tallahassee, but I don't run many local races," said Niezgoda. "This was a sign-up-the-day-before type of thing."

Zach DeVeau

If you don't see Niezgoda at many 5K races, it's because he's getting ready for something longer.


"I'm training to do the Chicago Marathon," said Niezgoda.

On any Fourth of July morning in Florida you can expect high temperatures, and after the race there were more than a few complaints about the heat. None of those complaints, though, came from women's champ Ann Centner.


"I wasn't really that hot out there," said Centner. "5K, I don't really feel the heat. 10K, I would."

Ann Centner
Ann Centner

Centner's 18:04 was the fastest women's time at the Firecracker 5K since the race moved to Tallahassee. It was a speedy run from the outset, but Alyson Churchill was right with Centner. A rising senior on the Chiles High cross-country team and the 2016 Florida high school cross-country champion, Churchill had won the Firecracker 5K women's title in 2015.


"I think she went out pretty fast, because my first mile was pretty fast, too. 5:35 or 5:38," said Centner. "I was probably out faster than usual but I've been doing shorter workouts, training for the mile."

Alyson Churchill, Ann Centner

After that 5:35 (or 5:38) opening mile, Churchill took over the lead.


"I was behind Ann for a mile," said Churchill. "I passed her right at the mile, and then she passed me at the turnaround."


"At the turnaround I put in a surge and she didn't go with me," said Centner.

Nor did anyone else. Center went 18:04, taking first in the women's standings. Alyson Churchill ran 18:55, placing runner-up for the women and tenth overall in 18:55.


"That was exciting!" said Churchill. "I enjoyed doing a community race."

Churchill doesn't get to compete in many community events, being busy racing for the Chiles High Timberwolves--for instance, at the 2018 High School State Championships, where the Chiles girls won the team title. One of the athletes she raced that morning was Palmetto High senior Morgan "Mo" Palmer. Palmer, now headed to Florida State University, was the third woman and nineteenth overall in the Firecracker 5K, running 19:45.


Davidson University distance runner Caroline Willis outkicked Florida Tech alum Amanda Sava for the fourth spot in the women's standings, 20:20 to 20:24. Willis and Sava were 21st and 22nd overall. Stacy Biggart of Tallahassee was the first woman master and eleventh female finisher, 44th overall in 23:17.
