I checked a few other random races (non-Kip related), and everything comes with completely different results.

Ok, for full disclosure, I looked up up "1&1" web hosting, and they are one of the larger hosters. Still very suspicious. It seems every rock we look under turns up something new. Not many dead-ends in this case.
Kip's dental office (kiplittondds.com) is hosted by the same place.

If you download the PDF results for the Sandy Springs half marathon and look at the author information in Adobe Acrobat, its author is Ben Millefoglie. And who is Ben Millefoglie friends with on facebook?
Also, if you look at the HTML source for all 4 races, they were created using the program Serif WebPlus X4 (12.0.4.031), which isn't exactly widely used among web designers.
Whoomp there it is

It looks like Ben Millefoglie has a little web design business here http://newventurewebs.com, and interestingly enough, he hosts his page at 1and1, is from Davison, and uses Serif WebPlus for other sites in his portfolio. Guess he's doing Kip a favor.

Wow - this is beyond fascinating and the most entertaining letsrun thread is history, bar none. The pieces to the jigsaw puzzle are coming together. The accomplices! This is like real-life the "Usual Suspects." When is Kayser Soze (KL) going to disappear?
And just like that.........he was gone....(poof).

I agree that this thread has been fascinating. Nice going mods who deleted all the previous threads, while keeping the 100s of other threads about people crapping in compression socks. Well played Wejo and Rojo.
If it is ultimately determined some of these races are complete fabrications, then this guy deserves every negative comment that's been posted. And your man who wrote the glowing article about him in the local paper needs to do a follow-up and expose his fraud.

So then cheated in many races by "shortening" the actual distance and then actually made up races that didn't exsist by using no more of a physical effort than pushing down buttons on his computer keyboard. Wow!
Can you say banned for life or a very long time, whichever comes first:)?
Kinda doubt he will be at the Crim next year:):):):)!
off course Oscar

When you look at the results it starts to look more obvious that it is all a fraud. What four and a half hour marathoner is going to do an unsupported race so small and fly all the way from San Francisco just to do it? The local races where I live that are this small have all local runners. Slow marathoners usually want full support and usually will choose more publicized races to travel to. I know Jackson Hole is more full of tourists but not to this extent.

The Pine Hills race is made up. I live here and know a lot of runners. Don't know anyone listed in the results.
I live in Orlando, and since there aren't that many fast runners around town, I basically know every single person (or at least have heard of them) who can break 17:00 for a 5k. Granted, the OUC half marathon & 5k was that same day (12/4/10) in downtown Orlando which attracted the faster crowd.
Not to mention...the "Pine Hills 5k"....if anyone knows anything about the Pine Hills area of Orlando, you would know that IS NOT a good place to hold a road race. It's like the East St. Louis of Orlando. Commonly known around here as "Crime Hills".
