How do you guys handle running in the pissing rain? Just accept the fact that you're going to get soggy socks? Waterproof trainers?
Want to try and run more this year, no matter the weather (it's too easy to put off at the slightest sight of rain).

Yep, accept it. Gotta couple of light outer shell jackets (one Nike, one Patagonia) but neither are gonna keep you dry if you're out for 3+ miles.

Posted those up in the Claire Rayners thread a few weeks ago. Reviews from YouTube runners (that I peek at) are pretty good but unless you're running in snow and Storm Matilda they'll prolly be overkill.
Could try the Pegasus 32 Trail Gore-tex?

Yeah, apologies '36' (rushed mis-type) - got a few pairs. Incredibly comfy for running, nearly 400 miles on one pair and their just starting to feel like they're losing their 'bounce'.

Don't go buying loads of shit, Nike shield runners and a cheapo vented wind & shower-proof top are worth a punt if you can get them cheap but if you run in the pissing rain, you'll get wet. Get home, stick it all in the machine, shower, you're good.

I get you. Its easy to get caught up in it all but there's nothing worse than running in soaking wet sock IMO.
The difference running in the shields is huge compares to my normal running shoes.
