As Trogs says, you will get wet and muddy... so there's no point in having unnecessary kit which will also get wet muddy and heavy. If you are running you won't be cold, regardless of how wet you are. You will only notice when you stop in all likelihood... so my advice is wear a base layer with maybe a tshirt or vest over the top and capri shorts and take a change of clothes, old tracky bottoms etc for after for a quick change so that you are warm on the journey home. If there are no changing facilities... then many a runner have been known to do quick changes behind their cars/in the bushes/in the middle of a field... and believe me, no-one is looking at anyone's white legs (which will probably be black by the end) and no-one cares what you look like or if you do have a quick change... everyone is there for the same reason. Have fun!!!
