In brief: NSAIDS
Ice, rest and nsaids like Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) is the best you can do before a race.
If you don't know why your ankle hurts you may want to see a doc to get it evaluated to prevent worsening of a condition.

In brief: Tape or brace.
You can try to have your ankle taped , or wear a lace up brace, for support, which may relieve some pain.
Taking an anti-inflammatory medication can help as well.

Depends on why you have the ankle pain.
I recommend you see a local podiatrist who specializes in sports med.
