Waterproof jacket and pants for ultra

A waterproof jacket and pants, both with taped seams is part of the mandatory kit list for an ultra I'm running later this year.
I don't mind spending a little more on a jacket as that'll benefit me through winter but I doubt I'll wear the pants. Can anybody recommend something cheap that would satisfy the organisers?

The jacket I'm drawn to is an Inov8 Race Elite half zip. It's priced around 90 and seems to be reviewed quite well.

Waterproof jackets usually a rating of HH10000 or higher. I've for a Salomon Bonatti jacket but as long as you meeting the rating you'll be fine with most things. Smocks are often cheaper but I opted for a proper zipped jacket that I can get over me and my racing vest to keep my pack dry.

Decathlon, Ronhill, inov-8 all have their own versions
