Kiros and Terry make triumphant returns to the Deer Run

On Saturday morning, 4 November 2017, Geb Kiros was at Deerlake Middle School north of Tallahassee. He was there for the second year in a row to race the annual Deer Run 5K. And for the second year in a row, the Florida A & M University biostatistics professor won the 3.1-mile race. This time the master runner covered the course in 18:33. Alyssa Terry had also run the race in 2016, finishing eighth in the women's standings. In 2017, Terry took the Deer Run women's title, placing seventh overall in 20:42.
