Video Breaks Down Whether It’s Better to Walk or Run In the Rain to Try to Stay Dry

When the skies open up and it begins to pour buckets, should you walk or run to your destination to stay as dry as possible?

That conundrum was explored by Stu K from the popular YouTube channel “Debunked” and the answers are probably more complicated than you would think…

In the video, Stu says, “The question of whether or not to run or walk in the rain throws up a range of unexpected concerns and considerations, and indeed, much of the scientific discussion of the issue deals with very specific theoretical aspects of the problem that aren’t at all practical to consider in the real world.

I don’t know about you, but having to factor wind speed and direction, as well as how fat you are, into your decision on whether to walk or run through the rain feels just a little like overdoing it.”

Be sure to watch the whole video to hear all of Stu’s great insights!
