Good day!

Winter running gear requires special attention. You need to dress according to the weather. That is, too warm clothing will cause the same discomfort as too light one. 

The first layer is always thermal underwear. The purpose of the layer is to draw moisture away from the skin that allows you not to freeze even in severe cold weather.

The next layer is clothing made from fleece or soft shell fabric (combines two layers: membrane and fleece). Usually, a windproof jacket is worn on the fleece. Depending on the weather, you can vary the thickness of layers and always stay in comfort.

Winter shoes should be equipped with a good tread. Trail running shoes are well suited for this purpose. 

Unfortunately, the topic of preparation is too broad to give you a comprehensive answer in the format proposed.
