I've created a program that could allow anybody to download a large amount of finisher pics for analysis so that not just us programmers are able to do this. Would anybody be interested in me posting the code and instructions? I can make it very fool proof.
Curious programmer--I have a favor to ask. Is there a way you can look at the 2014 San Francisco photos and find a way to be able to either scrape or view sequentially?
When you've done with that I was wonderin' if the 2009 Pasadena is the next one you super sleuths can research. It's one of his earliest fraudulent marathons to be covered by a photo company, he's wearing full heavy wet clothing and recorded 3:19:59 lol. Back then Frank would never have imagined the super sleuthing that's going on now so there's got to be some cheating picture evidence there.
The reason for outing him in this one means there's evidence in 2009 and evidence in 2019 and a couple in between, so it's cut and dried with "irrefutable" evidence (as Loyola High School Head Coach Diaz would say) that he's been at it for at least 10 years.

Previous bike evidence:
Looks like Frankie used a bicycle to cheat for this race. He has velcro keeping his right pant leg tight to the leg, just as you would if you where riding a bicycle with bagging pants one.

As usual Frank is overdressed compared to everyone else and 3:19:59 is damned impressive even for a shorts and singlet wearing, skinny, highly trained 60 year old, so definitely not ligit coming from Frank.
If it's possible for the super sleuths to scrape MarathonFoto's for off course shots of Furtive Frankie this would be a good early one to start with:
