Fiest 10 km race
I'm up at 6 most days. I'd have my trusty beans on toast about 6.30 -7.00. Plus lots and lots of water before I leave. I might nibble on some nuts or a tracker bar or equivalent. Go for a wee before I go Essential. Then when I am there I usually do not need to eat or drink till after the race. Its the days running up to the race that you should also think about eating and drinking.
Not saying the magic beans on toast is for everybody. But yeah a nana and bagel would be fine. Just take it steady and dont over do it in the race. If this is your first ever race. Just enjoy it. Worry about times etc in the future I done my first 10k a few weeks back and got another this Wednesday. As I am training for an ultra, I just go along to enjoy it and have a laugh and plod along
