Felt as sick as a dog and only just managed to stop myself from delivering a "pavement pizza".
I think they're all keen on over-prescribing how many to take. Sure it's similar with SIS Go. I'm with Cougie - one every 5 miles, and if you've done the right things by (a) training, (b) pre-race carb loading and (c) race pacing on the day, you will be fine.
I eat every hour, but make sure I'm well-fuelled with porridge and flapjack before I start.
I find SIS are much better and you dont need to take with liquids
Most people dont really need a gel for exercise upto 1.5 hours if you have had enought breakfast/food in the days leading upto event
For marathons you are basically loading up early in the race when you dont need it to prevent issues later
I would say have every 5miles ish, but it really is trial and error , they take about 15mins to work
