The SPOT is in the van. We know that. That is what is being tracked on the website. You cannot use that to judge his run data. It can only be used as a way of tracking their current location. Which is what the website shows. (and I assume needs a stronger connection to broadcast than a simpler recording pack in his shorts)
Rob has said clearly in today's video that he carries a separate tracker. That is the data you need to examine when it is presented, That needs to be checked against the logs and watch GPS. That data could be entirely different.
As far as I can tell he's running across america, using several tracking methods, a legit live tracking site (similar to Jureks AT) with more than one news crew (One being ESPN). Let Rob and his team present their evidence data from the watches/shorts tracker and see if it stands up to scrutiny then. If it doesn't he won't get the record.
Am I going nuts or are the sleuths here are using the van data as his run data? When this is simply not the case? The van data is only a guide to where they are for the website.
The tracking data (when it was up) locates him on a running/biking path on the Santa Ana river that no cars are allowed on. It also shows him on an offroad hillside near highway 60. If all of these pings are from the SPOT tracker in the van, then the logged data is impossible. If the tracker is passed back and forth from van to Rob, then the data is worthless and can't be relied upon. If the tracker was always with Rob, then the speeds are impossible.
