What to eat before you run: 1 Meals should be consumed at least two hours before a run, running on a full stomach can result in painful gastric symptoms. If it's a few hours since you've eaten, you should eat a small snack such as a banana with a handful of nuts or an energy bar.
2 It's essential to eat a good serving of a carbohydrate-rich food. Glucose (blood sugar) is the fuel that supplies energy to our muscles during exercise. Good pre-run carb sources include pasta, rice, oats in porridge or oatcake, bread (sourdough) and potatoes.
YOU FUELS Pasta and sourdough bread are great
