We use simulation to gauge how various strategies for purposefully moving in the rain control the degree to which an individual is soaked while getting from point A to point B. The study is only concerned with the number of rain droplet hits. We use this as a proxy for “degree of soaking” without any regard to the clothing that the individual wears. The motion of the individual is assumed not to influence the rain intensity and direction. The two-way coupling emerging at high speeds will be addressed in a different study.
