Sorry for the delayed response! I'm pregnant and over on the Babyfit boards these days!
Personally, I would opt for the practice 30 minute run. I think it will make you feel more mentally prepared. Then hop back on the program after your race.
As for eating, that's a tough one. What a late race! I would plan on eating a good breakfast and then grazing all day if it we me. Don't want to be bogged down by anything too heavy.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way..." -
