Taunton AC has just launched a Crowdfunder appeal to raise money for essential repairs and maintenance of our equipment at the track. Without these funds we may well not be able to continue using all of our facilities. Use this link to contribute!
Juniors' training over the summer break
The final week of Juniors' training will be the week commencing July 19th. Training for Juniors restarts the week commencing September 6th. You should all have received an email about arrangements for moving up a year group. If you haven't, please contact Julie and Dan, the Membership Secretaries.
Track and field is back! Below are links to comprehensive fixture lists for the summer. These are accurate as of 17.04.21, but obviously things might change. Other events may well be added later, and some dates might be changed. So please check yourselves, and bear in mind that you may well have to enter in advance, even with open meetings.
Taunton AC Kitshop
The Taunton AC Kitshop is now fully open for you to order 'Training Kit' from the Core Range or 'Competition Kit' from the Bespoke Range. These two distinct parts of the shop allow you to order a large range of items.
The TRAINING KITSHOP is open all year round and the items are usually delivered direct to you within 4 weeks of order. In here you will find Track Suits, Hoodies, Waterproof Coats, Baselayers, Leggings, Bench Coats, Insulated Jackets and various accessories, all with the Taunton AC logo on them.
The COMPETITION KITSHOP is only open for short periods of time throughout the year. These items have to be specially ordered and take about 14 weeks to arrive at the Clubhouse when they are then distributed to you. In here you will find garments that have the Taunton AC horizontal stripes of Navy Blue, Green and White. These include the Taunton AC Vests (which must be worn if you're competing for Taunton AC at any events), Wet Jackets, Hoodies, Beanie Hats and Track Suits. This shop will be closing on November 16th, so please get any orders in quickly to avoid disappointment, as Kitshop only carries a small amount of stock.
Please be aware that the Men's / Unisex garments tend to be larger than you'd expect. We are finding that you generally need to order one size smaller than you would normally be.
