I know this is a bit of a strange question so I stuck it in the beginners section as its a bit of a beginners question.
Doing an event in December on the coast- Its going to be wet and cold without a doubt- I have to take mandatory kit. One thing obviously being a jacket. Being mandatory do most race officials check your kit before the race? Will they be picky and say '' mate it aint gore tex or 'its only shower proof and not tornado proof' etc?
Now the only jacket I have ever owned for running is a super cheap Hi Vis jacket which acts like a sauna in any temperature over 5 degrees.
So i am looking into getting a jacket for not very nice conditions. I thought now would be a good time because its summer and who wants a winter coat so I'll get some billy bargains Looking on start fitness website and simply run and there are hundreds of different jackets. Can I get something decent for around 40quid? What should I be looking out for. Plus even if its cold and horrible surely you will just overheat running in any jacket? Or am I a bit last century with technology?
