I agree with the practice with the race drink... but you cannot really find the powdered version of PowerAde on retail shelves in the US. I find that GatorAde G2 is closer to the race drink than bottled PowerAde. I cannot figure out why Coke creates so vastly different product.
I do not really worry about the food offered by the race as I train with what I know works for me. If you happen to be training with Clif products do MAKE SURE that you are grabbing the flavor you have trained with. A simple change in flavor can cause issue.
One other point. I would look to train on a shorter long run by taking a banana on the run. I see lots of half eaten bananas on the roadway in a marathon. Also, if you do practice with a banana, check the ripeness in the marathon. The bananas in a race are usually fairly green and firm. That may not be what one is looking for.
