Devil Takes The Hindmost – 3rd September 2019

This year’s competition will take place on Tuesday 3rd September at 7pm on the normal course at Rochester Road in Northwood Hills, opposite Haydon School.

Please register at the clubhouse by 6.30pm or be at Rochester Road by 6.50pm.

You compete entirely at your own risk.

All Club members are welcome to run, with a £3 fee for any non-Club members.

This year there will be a maximum of four competitions, with the exact make-up formulated after the entries close at 6.50pm:

Competition One –Maximum of ten rounds

Competition Two –Maximum of eight rounds

Competition Three –Maximum of eight rounds

Plate Competition (for those knocked out in early
stages of the other three competitions) – Maximum of four rounds

In 2018 the three competitions were:

(1) Under 50 Men; (2) 50-64 Men; (3) Women & Over 65 Men

How does it work?

All the runners in each competition start together and run up the hill (just under 300m in length). The last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of entries).

The remainder jog back down again and then repeat the run up the hill. Once again, the last one to the top is eliminated (sometimes more depending on number of entries).

This is repeated until only one runner is left, who is the winner of the competition.

So that everyone gets more than one run, halfway through the event everyone who has been eliminated to that point in the three main competitions can enter the Plate competition.
