Wear what you will need to keep warm. There will be a specific baggage bus
for your stuff at the start. Pack for the worst conditions including
the hefty plastic bag or old shirt(to toss) to keep you warm while
you wait for the start. In fact, bring many hefty bags in case you want
to rest in the village on the damp ground.

You may gets lots of anecdotoal reports on what to eat. The answer is,
do what you did for your long runs. Race day is not the time to experiment.
If is too late, and you didn't practice a long run assuming the above
conditions, think what might work best for you. I eat a breakfast for 12 at 6am
and throw down a power bar or two an hour or so before the start. I do
NOT suggest this for anyone but me.

Save one of the plastic bags for the starting line in case of cold or rain.
