From my own experience typically aid stations are pretty good and plenty of the usual stuff that people are after will be there. If you are after anything really specific then the safest bet is to carry it yourself.
Common items to find at aid stations are things like mars bars, banana, flapjack, biscuits, jelly sweets, water, coke, orange juice. Some longer races have a designated aid station serving more substantial and hot food. Best bet to confirm any doubts would be contact the organiser. Having met the organiser for the Thames Path 100 I am sure you will get a helpful response.
Check with the organiser as all races are different. For example they could say energy drink but if it is a brand you do not like then they may as well have none at all.
It is a good idea before entering a race to check out these things and also if it is possible to have your own stuff taken to certain aid stations.
