Dr. Atkins - Diet Bars
Essential Bars - Chocolate and the Fruit and Yogurt
Gary Null & Assoc. - Fruit and Fiber Energy Bar
Granola Bars from Trader Joe's
NuBasics - Complete Nutrition Bar and the Mocha Berry
I think there's some speciality gluten-free companies that sell bars too. That's what I'd recomend for fast food. Good luck with your race!!

You might consider getting a backpacking stove to have with you all the time to cook meals (I use a Nova multi-fuel stove). Also a hot plate for inside the hotel rooms. MSR makes some really good stainless pots, pans, bowls, and plates. Stainless is the best for people with celiac disease, because if you accidentally make a mistake and cook some gluten, you do not have to throw out the pan, because it is non-porous. Do NOT use non-stick Teflon.
Brown rice (do not use instant) is a great energy food. It metabolizes slowly for even energy, and sticks with you for a long time. Combine it with some sardines or canned salmon (I use no salt added), canned vegetables (I use no salt added), and some fruit for a travel meal. This is food for NON-refrigeration travel. If you can travel with refrigeration you can use fresh foods instead of canned (it’s cheaper).
P.S. Midnightlulluby’s suggestion is a good one, but you have to remember that up to 20 percent of the processed foods out there called “gluten free,” contain measurable amounts of gluten. Processed gluten free foods are a crap shoot (you might be shooting crap if you eat them).
