He was, however, allowed to wear running shoes. Before Sunday, the record for fastest marathon in a suit was 2:58:03, run by Joe Elliott of Great Britain in 2013 at the London Marathon. Whitaker wasn’t the only runner to improve upon the time. Michael Tozer also smashed the previous record, running 2:50:57, in a dapper royal blue getup. (Tozer does hold the record for half-marathon in a suit, 1:18:10, which he ran last July.)
PBOT is the same governing body that rejected the race’s permit application in June. The city has fewer police officers available to staff the 2017 event and informed the marathon after the 2016 race that it would need to change its course. Race organizers didn’t respond to requests for meetings with city officials and instead submitted its permit application for this year’s event with no changes to the course—which caused the initial permit rejection.
• Those with marathon qualifying times—run since September 17 of last year—that are 20 or more minutes faster than the standard for their age and gender are allowed the first crack at registering on Monday. Those fast folks alone can sign up during the first 48 hours. • At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, September 13, registration opens for those who are 10 or more minutes faster than their qualifying time.
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".
