How do you usually eat? I mean, it goes without saying to be well fed and rested before a competition of any kind. If your typical diet is sustaining you well when you're training, then there's really no reason to stray far from it for competition. Maybe a little extra food and water, but I wouldn't drastically change anything, especially if you haven't tested it in training. For example, let's say you were doing low/no carb and then trying to take advantage of supercompensation and carb loading every so often. I would do it multiple times during training to test it and make sure it works for you. You could end up with a case of runs during your run, and that never ends well.
