McHilly, I recommend running with cream on. I am pale and have to when I run in SA. The one year I didnt (the up run in 2011) I got badly burned on one side because the race is one direction and its always on your right hand side on the up ... I was burnt all down that side and on the inside of my left leg. Needless to say it was very sore.
Usually I cream up first thing and again just before I leave home/hotel and it stays on all day. If you feel yourself burning the locals are often giving it out on the side of the road.
Same as Becca, I dont recomment long sleeves.
