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!

First, you must be completely serious about doing this the natural way. You should first find about 100 yards of open, flat, smooth space to run. Then you should run about 100 yards of sprints 10-15 times a day, and go as hard as you can. Then run about 40 yards as hard as you can 20-25 times a day. You can run 2 days on and two days off First, you must be completely serious about doing this the natural way. You should first find about 100 yards of open, flat, smooth space to run.

I am in Track and I know a lot about running. The 4x400 event is an event that usually takes place at the end of a track meet. It consists of up to 8 teams, 1 team for each lane. It is a relay race that involves a baton and 4 runners for each team. Each runner will run one lap (400 meters) passing the baton to the next runner on their team. So each runner will have run one lap and the team itself ran 1 mile. It is often a fast paced race and involves concentration and speed. If a team drops the baton, they are disqualified. When it is the runner's turn they often maintain a fast pace throughout the lap and end with a kick for the last 100 meters.

A 4.6 second 40 yards has an average speed of 17.8 mph. In comparison, Usain Bolt produced an average speed of 23.5 mph for his world record 100 meters. This is equivalent to a 3.5 second 40 yards..

Train really hard and start off medium and then start getting faster as 400m is not that far to run ALL RIGHT.
