I guess this is possible but unlikely. Doubling back to transportation would have taken extra time and effort.
If he generally ran only 1/4 mile or so at a time, it would work fine. He could park as close as possible to the timing mat - or just beyond.
It’s simple without an accomplice. If he’s been doing this pre-2014, it would seem likely to me that it’s been a solo effort.
This is probably a basic question which has been answered before a lot. But, how does he even know where the timing mats are? You can often expect the usual 5km, 10km, half, 20mi etc.. but a lot of bigger races (and LA) do different increments. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25km etc.
