Kiros and Sherron hoof it at the Deer Run

It was a close finish for the leaders of the Deer Run 5K on Saturday morning, 5 November 2016. Little more than 60 meters separated the first runner from the fourth at the end of the race, but the fastest of those four was master runner Geb Kiros. The Florida A & M University professor won the 3.1-mile race through the Killearn Lakes community of Tallahassee, Florida in 17:44. A Florida State University professor, Katie Sherron, took the Deer Run women's title, placing ninth overall in 19:52.

Ryan Truchelut, Zach DeVeau, and Jim Halley cascaded across the finish line after Kiros. Truchelut was second in 17:51, DeVeau third in 17:55, and Halley fourth in 17:58.


Katie Sherron's 19:52 was the fastest Deer Run time by a woman since Allison Eagen ran 19:36 in the 2010 race. Just three days after racing the Rex Cleveland Magic Mile, Katie Sack was runner-up in the women's standings and thirteenth overall in 20:52. Jillian Heddaeus was the third woman and seventeenth overall in 21:13, while Nikky Manausa was the fourth woman and twentieth overall in 21:28. Paula O'Neill was the top woman master and fifth female finisher, 26th overall in 22:05.


233 athletes finished the 2016 Deer Run 5K, with another 172 completing a one-mile fun run.
