All runners MUST bring and be prepared to carry a waterproof jacket. It must have taped seams and a permanent attached hood. If yours is not waterproof and the weather on the day requires you to have a waterproof one, you will not be allowed to run. The “florries” that many runners use for night running are NOT waterproof and therefore do not count as such. Other equipment you may be asked to carry are hat, gloves and; older runners (U16 and above) waterproof trousers, compass, whistle and map.
