Any advice on what a good breakfast is to have before the marathon? I was going to go for a concoction I've found works pretty well - a mixture of porridge, wheat, barley and rye flakes with a sprinkle of rasins! All washed down with some energy drink. Any suggestions? Shouldn't be trying anything new at this point, but always looking for new ideas for the future!!

Given that breakfast is at 6:00 am in most hotels and the start at 9:45 it has to be the full fry up for me. Forget this nambie pambie cereal lark.

Macattak I would personaly not try anything new before the race. Before all my long runs (18m, 20m..) for brekfast I have just had 2 pieces of toasts with a bit of jam and it worked for me.So I will stick to that on Sunday morning.
Hope it helps!

Macattak, I have something similar to you, a bowl of Fuit'n Fibre with added raisins and lots of semi-skimmed milk, a cup of sweet tea, and two rich tea biscuits. About 500 calories in total and lots of water.

four toasts with butter and jam, and two big glasses of Ribena.

I don't normally eat breakfast before a run, but am going to have some pikelets and butter before, seeing as it'll be a long time before we run. (I know you're supposed to eat, but I just usually get out of bed, put my running shoes on and run).

Healthy breakfast of bagel, energy bar, carbo drink & coffee if I have time. Tape the footy Sat night, watch it over brekkie then walk to the start.

One bowl of breakfast cereal (whatever I fancy on the day - bet they won't have honey nut shredded wheat) with milk; several slices of toast with jam or cheese; fruit with yogurt and honey. Lots of coffee. A 500ml bottle of my preferred slightly hypotonic drink while waiting in the start pen.

If I'm up too late for breakfast, three or four High5 caramel bars.

2 toasts and jam and a nice cup of tea,Lucozade on the way.

Anyone tried rice krispies? Lots of carbs, little fibre, been trying recently instead of fruit and fibre thingies which can sit a bit heavy. Also couple of slices of toast with marmalade; tea; lucozade en route (really fancy something else, don't know what but daren't risk it.)
Like Miniegg tho', generally an out of bed and out the door type.
Gavo - watch the footie? walk to start??? lucky b????r!!!!
