The problem is that this Natty dude has bragged for days about his friends going out there and following the RV. But these guys appear to be scammers like pretty much every ultra runner out there. So until some real runners take up Robert's challenge of running with him nothing will happen.
You don't pre-announce the progress of a spy mission. Are you an amateur?
Why spy? Why not just join the caravan and document the legitimacy of it all? Hit your garmin when RY is running and collect the data that they are unwilling to reveal.
Because right now he may be saving his legs to make it legit while he has company. If he has runners tagging along he can always say his legs are in pain and just take it easy that day. He won't be giving it away with honest people at his side. It needs to be a spy mission.
