First off, to run a 400m or any race well, you need to have properly trained beforehand. The 400m is a sprint, so your suppose to sprint the whole thing, but some people don't. Good sprinting form must be practiced to compete seriously. However, if you want a good 400m running strategy, this is the best one:

First 100m-all out sprint.

Second 100m-pace should slow slightly, however still be fast, but more of a striding motion should be added to the sprint. Focus on breathing rhythmically.

Third 100m-pick up pace. You want to come off the corner strong.

Fourth 100m-explode off. Maximize forward push, and keep your mind on your running form. Everyone will be hurting here, and the one who stays mentally strong and keeps their form will win! So give it all you got!
