What do you folks like eating?
A couple of gels and an energy bar (e.g. Go bar) are fine for a marathon but these sorts of things generally create nausea beyond that distance. I find anyway. Too sugary.
Next up is a trail mix as everyone else has been saying - I find goji berry mix from Julian Graves to be good. More than 40 miles you're starting to need "proper food". I like peanut butter-and-jam sarnies and malt loaf with marmite.
Once you're into really long distances you can eat anything, and the more of it the better!
A good tip is to start eating as early as you can in the ultra. Never let the stomach empty.
