You really should be experimenting with eating before your training runs to find what will work best for you.
Food before races is a personal choice and what works for some won't work for others.
Some eat, some don't and some just can't.

But the rule of thumb is if it's a *large* meal, you'll want to eat it at least 2 hours before a race to give it time to settle. Otherwise, maybe try a banana, bagel, piece of toast, etc.

Good luck!

If I eat too soon before a run I get serious side aches and cramps. I would take into consideration how much you usually eat and how much time passes before you normally run and try keep it similar.
Good luck on your 5k! emoticon

I am running my first 5K in less than 2 weeks and I'm wondering what I should eat before it. The race starts at 9 AM, and I know I'll be there before registration at 8 AM to help set up. What is the best thing to eat that will give me energy and stay with me through the race? I'm thinking of oatmeal. I've been having oatmeal with cranberries and walnuts for breakfast lately and it seems like a good combo. Thoughts?
