Running in the rain...tips?

I'm running a race on a rainy day. 60% chance of rain, 8 mph wind, showers. I'm running at about 6 AM, and the temperature will be about 61 degrees Fahrenheit.

Should I run with my body more away from the ground, standing taller, or should I run low to the ground to decrease getting wet? Ponchos are fine for running, right? Other tips for running in the rain are much appreciated.

I don't even know why you're running then if it's going to be raining that seems like it would make it slippery and cause you to fall. Just wear good comfortable running shoes, tank top, running shorts, and over all of that no poncho a waterproof tight jacket or waterproof suit that way your clothes won't get wet. And it'll be cold so you might want to wear warm clothes underneath like a long sleeve shirt over the tank top. Hope you have fun and also GOOD LUCK!

Wear a water proof light to medium jacket, and run fast to prevent unnecessary wetness, change clothes when you are done, and bring an extra pair of shoes. Good Luck

I wouldn't recommend do anything that might obstruct your running. A poncho in the wind would make for a good drag chute to slow you down. I think regular running clothes, and some goggles to keep water out of your eyes. If you have to take the goggles off to let sweat out, lift them up from the bottom only. I'd say if you're going to wear long clothes for the cold, wear a wetsuit to keep you from getting wet under your clothes
