Grant said:I usually eat normally the night before a race, but try to avoid anything spicy.
I'll usually have cereal and tea for breakfast and a banana and Red Bull about 30-45mins before the race.

Nah, I know the received wisdom about tapering for marathons or halfs. Haven't ran that far yet, 10 and 5ks my distance and I like continuing some relaxed running up to 2 or 3 days before the race. Pre race I have my normal brekkie of muesli and tea, and have a banana about an hour before race start.fandango said:It still amazes me how many people go for a run so close to a race. I tend to stop running a week before a race.
