What to eat/drink on long runs and during a marathon help


I am running the London marathon this year (my 1st marathon) and would like some advice about what to eat/drink during long runs and on the day. I have tried drinking Lucozade Sport on my last long run (12 miles) with but it upset my stomach so think I'll stay away from it.

I haven't tried any gels yet, do you have any suggestions that you use and where do you get them from? Also how often do you eat them? Could I survive the marathon with just water and gels?

Thanks if you are able to assist! image
