... is that the race starts at noon. And you wait for a long while before the start if you get to the start line with the school bus.
So, my suggestion is to train accordingly (mimick a noon start and see how to adjust).
It would be a good idea to carry a few gels (runners are given one around the 25 or 30 k mark, if I recall).
As for the weather, I wouldn't give it a thought - because there is no way to know what to expect. Two years ago it was 53 degrees (warmer at the start than at the finish, so I kept my warmup T-shirt over the singlet throughout) while last year was just miserably dull weather.
