Can someone please tell me what a "<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; line-height: 19px; color: #000000;">Full windproof/showerproof body cover" actually is and where I can get one from???

A windproof top and trousers!

In the kit recommendations it's recommending a Montane marathon jacket which is what I'm using.

I bought a Montane jacket from Go outdoors for £38, it is really light and windproof, for the pants I bought them for £10 from Decathlon, both fold up to Tennis ball size so I'm hoping thats all I'll need.

Is this the Rat Race run ?  Yeah - you'll have a rain jacket thing and I just threw in my waterproof rain trousers that I have for walking in. It would have to be absolutely foul to run in them though.  They recommend Montane as they sell them in their shop

Montane trousers are dearer than the Jackets.

Yeah that's weird isn't it, I like the jacket but it's only marginally better than an old one I bought from JJB, trousers definitely not worth it, I'm taking a cheap pair, because I have to but it would need a snowstorm for me to want to run in them,

I'd really not pay megabucks for the trousers - when would you get any wear out of them ?   The jackets are nice though. I have one but its too nice to run in - the cheap ones get used for that !

Thanks all - I'll dig out my waterproofs - not buying anything new, this run is costing me a small fortune as it is!

If this weather persists may just need them though!......
