What to wear...
I have it on very good authority that if there's a chance of rain the event will be cancelled. So I wouldn't worry
Once, it started sleeting in the middle of a marathon. Then, I was glad I had a Montane windjacket balled up in one pocket (size of a grapefruit). In the infamous Manchester of a couple of years back I kept on a binbag for quite a while. Other than those exceptional conditions I'd do what the others say. Note that if you have flappy shorts and they get sodden through then you may get chafing problems even if you don't normally have them.
Yes, you might want to wear tight shorts. No need for coats in April. Getting cold is the enemy, not wet, which you won't get if you keep moving. Would recommend a running cap though which makes you feel a bit more comfortable and keeps the rain out of your eyes.
