comment Benefits on running completely soaked?
All 3 really. There's often not a lot of water at aid stations (in my kind of races they can be quite remote and some require hiking the water in). A bunch of water lands on my shirt, etc but will evaporate quickly. While it's there it can chafe leading to discomfort. Saving time is a bit of an issue - but I'm slow... People collapsing in a 10km? Wow, way under-trained!

I disagree with hydrating with only water. For efforts longer than about 90mins-2hours you need to consider your salt balance. It can be fatal to not have enough salt in your body. Depending on your event, you should also consider your nutrition strategy.

comment Running in strong wind
Cross wind is much the same as headwind - but harder. You need the quick steps so that when a gust hits you are more likely to have contact with the ground - or will do very soon. If you're running with others then you can do the same headwind truck.
