    I'm guessing you don't like Maths...

    As tony_montana said, the answer is 4 minutes
    Although I didn't see the answer until after I did it myself. I missed page 3 for some reason and only saw Lucky Maroon's post on page 4.

    My working:

    time= distance/speed

    For Dewey:
    t+2=x/0.08
    (where t= time to catch up and x= distance they ran)
    0.08t+0.16=x

    For Malcolm and Reese:
    t=x/0.12
    0.12t=x

    So:
    0.12t=0.08t+0.16
    0.04t=0.16
    t=0.16/0.04=4 minutes

    (Which means incidentally they ran 0.12*4=0.48 miles
    which is around 772.5 metres)
