    He should pretty much starve himself 4-7days prior to the marathon to deplete the glycogen fuel stores in his body. Then 0-3 days before the marathon he should carbo-load, i.e. eat foods with lots of carbohydrates like pasta to double his glycogen stores. During the race he should drink a sugary non-carbonated drink like your regular sports drinks, which enable enhanced rehydration and provides sugars to his body without acidifying his blood and his muscles.

    This is from a student biochemist's point of view, you should really consult dietitians, nutritionists and/or personal trainers and google some for a better answer.
