Im doing a 50 mile (Longmynd Hike) in October. Ive got what id call "middle weight" waterproofs which are goretex or equivalent. As Im going to be running parts of it this year, Im likely to sweat too much in the waterproofs Ive got, so am I better to get the lightest possible kit which conforms to the hike roules (Im thinking Montane or the likes) and simply leave them in the backpack ?
Alternatively, is such a thing as a lighweight jacket that you can run in without getting drenched on the inside ? Ive seen the Marmot Mica jacket which weighs in at only 200g and is supposed to be very breathable ???
If it were a shorter distance, or if I was one of the guys doing it in 8-10 hrs, Id pack them away and forget about it, but Im probably going to be more like 13 hours and from past experience it can often rain from start to finish !
