Do I need to be selected for a team to wear a Team Bath AC vest?
No. You do not need to be selected for a team. Each, every and all TBAC members should wear Team Bath AC vests; certainly when running in a race, and optionally whenever else.
Do I need to be an elite athlete to wear a Team Bath AC vest?
No. You do not need to be an elite athlete. Each, every and all TBAC members should wear Team Bath AC vests.
Do I need to wear a Team Bath AC vest at an event?
Yes. You should always wear a club vest at an event. Some competitions will not count an athlete or runner not wearing their club vest (so, for example, a no-vest would not count for a team prize; the London Marathon is an example). When you enter an event you should give your team as “Team Bath AC”.
What should I buy from runningBath?
What should I buy from pbteamwear*?
everything else: fleeces, hoodies, soft shell, training Tees, back packs, kit bags and hats.
Is it only adult kit?
No. There is kit for juniors too.
Does pbteamwear* have a returns policy?
Yes, and it is restrictive: kit from pbteamwear* cannot be returned for refund or exchange. Be sure to use the size charts prior to order. Consider checking whether another TBAC member has something from pbteamwear that you can try on for size before you order.
Can I buy Team Bath AC kit from the university shop?
No. It is confusing, but there is a distinction (for historical reasons) between the university-based TEAMBATH teams, and the independent Team Bath AC athletics club. You need to buy Team Bath AC. Don’t buy TEAMBATH gear. When you enter an event you should give your team as “Team Bath AC”.
