Yup. I first noted Bayshore 2008 as being suspicious back on 1/16/11 (bottom of p. 48). As well as Bayshore 2007 (2:55). Here's what I posted the next day (on p. 54):

'Date' 'Event' 'Gun Time' 'Chip Time' 'Difference' 'Overall Place' 'Key Suspicions'

5/24/08 Bayshore Marathon (MI) 2:57:07 2:55:10 0:01:57 26/1263 Long start delay; 1:23:27/1:31:42 splits -- 1st half faster than questionable PR at the time of 1:23:48 (Naples, FL)

5/26/07 Bayshore Marathon (MI) 2:56:35 2:55:20 0:01:15 22/1294 Long start delay

Is 1:15 a questionably long delay? For the 2007 Bayshore race, it means he started back with 4 and 5 hr finishers. And on another post I wrote on p. 54, I showed that prior to 2006, even in races with FAR more participants (>6700 finishers, for example, in the 2005 Crim 10M), he started only 13 sec back. So in Kip's case, I would say yes.

Mentioned it way back then, but worth mentioning here for newer readers: Kip's questionable race habits go back a long ways ... back to 2006. (Everything prior to then looks fine.)
