Three of the four major Synchrony Financial Rock 'n' Roll Arizona winners Sunday were mostly unchallenged, but Stephanie Bruce needed to dig deep on her 34th birthday to capture the women's half marathon for the second time in six years. Bruce, of Flagstaff, in her first race since finishing 10th at the 2017 New York City Marathon in November, edged former University of Arizona All-American Elvin Kibet by one second in a 13.1-mile duel that went down to the final 200 meters. Bruce won in 1:12.31.
The Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon turns 15 on Sunday with behind-the-scenes changes for an event that continues to draw some 20,000 participants. Ironman, a Wanda Sports Holdings company, purchased Competitor Group Inc., owner of the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon series, in June 2017 and is beginning its first full year managing the now 27-race RnR series.
Arizona State linebacker Koron Crump will return this season after being granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. Crump announced his appeal was approved via social media Friday. His return is a major boost for ASU, which is losing defensive lineman JoJo Wicker and linebacker Christian Sam early to pro football in addition to departures of several senior starters. Crump, 6-3, 222 pounds, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third game of his senior season.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
