JOHANNESBURG - It was fun. It was fast. And it was wonderful. Of course it has left me walking gingerly as though I've got gout. But I am not complaining. After all which social runner finishes his second marathon under three hours without the scars for the effort? Yes, you read it right. I completed the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon in a sub three hours time. Two hours, 57 minutes and 45 seconds to be exact.
JOHANNESBURG - The disappointments of his teammates’ failure to conquer the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon at the weekend will not dispirit Precious Mashele, but will instead serve as motivation for him to ace Sunday’s FNB Joburg 10K CiTYRUN. Mashele trains at the Zoo Lake under the guidance of the legendary Hendrick Ramaala, whose three charges were out to win the continent’s first and only IAAF Gold Label Status race.
JOHANNESBURG - What are the chances of Lungile Gongqa adding the Cape Town Marathon title to the Two Oceans gong he won earlier in the year? Coach Hendrick Ramaala is confident that his charge can complete the double. But he knows that it will take an inspired performance on Sunday for the South African Olympian to triumph. “It is going to be a very competitive race because they’ve assembled a top class elite field,” Ramaala, who himself will be running the marathon, said.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
