"While we were running it became clear that what I was trying to do was being treated with skepticism by a small group of individuals in the running community. I can assure you that all accusations against us of cheating are entirely unfounded. In our record bid we felt we were taking all reasonable measure to verify the authenticity of the run, including everything to satisfy Guinness guidelines and more besides. We were transparent and out in the open, findable by a tracker, and therefore surprised by the furore. In order to clear up this matter, in the next few days all data from the trip, which should exonerate me from any suggestion of wrongdoing, will be made available for examination by all concerned parties."
Boom! He will win in the court of public opinion.
