It is very easy to put off the scheduled run because it starts to rain – but until you have done it you don’t know what you are missing. Get out there and savour this life giving element.
Go Running in the Rain Challenge rules

- When you get home like a drowned rat, treat yourself to a hot bath, shower or sauna- whatever you have at your disposal.

- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Oooh, this is a great one to do. Wet & windy is the most exhilarating, especially where I live on the coast. Times won't look good, but it's a great buzz! Just dress appropriately, only once (when I was in my youth) did I train in torrential rain in vest & shorts & get so wet I got chilled. A waterproof running top & tights works best for me these days - at least for cool weather runs.”

Callie C Yes had a great running in rain leg during the 300km team run. In morning through hills. Not heavy but beautiful.
Richard R Started raining moments into the run and rained the whole way round. Did my pushups and situps in the rain too!
Bob K Looks like mother nature will allow me to do this today with a 60% chance of showers, bring it on!
Vincent R Tried this morning - came back soaked, but happy! Rain was light enough to keep you cool and energized, but not too heavy to make you bitter - perfect!

Katy D It started to sprinkle this morning, and I thought "cool, another challenge to complete"...yeah, no...stopped after a more drops fell...will try again :)
Col D Being Tasmanian I do this a lot but for this challenge 18km last night in a downpour. 4 star review for my adidas climaproof technology.
Jerry L When it's raining is the time to run! Me and afri end always run when it is raining. Feels fresher than than doing it under a scorching sun.
Paula K Kind of accidently did this :) It wasn't so bad as I expected. Actually it was nice, lot of oxygen in the air. Looks just silly trying to hop cross the puddles... ;D

Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
