For shorter races, it isn’t essential to have large amounts of food, but it is important to eat enough to top up liver glycogen stores and prevent hunger. For later races, triathletes will generally aim for a meal 3-4 hours before the race and then a smaller ‘top-up’ snack 1-2 hours before race start.
