Run fast or walk slow when the weather gets bad?

The weather sometimes can turn ugly very quickly, it is not uncommon to happen on treks. Particularly when travelling to areas like the South East Coast of Tasmania. Some people like to embrace the rain, and some people sprint for the closest shelter they can find. Now, you should always be prepared for any type of weather by packing waterproof gear, but the question still stands on how to stay dry?

So, if you research the physics behind rainfall it will explain that standing still will actually keep you as dry as possible. However, if you are trying to your end campsite then running or getting there as fast as possible will keep you as dry as possible. While you may be incredibly wet by the time you get to point B, you will be able to dry off as soon as you get there.
