I know it has already been said but most club officials are unpaid volunteers, without  them running (or any sport) would be a lot more expensive. I know it takes no more time to write a polite well worded letter but club volunteers are generally hard working people who 'make' time for things. Trying to get others to help too often gets a 'too busy' response, cut them a bit of slack! And make time help out even if it just little bit

What are the rules about wearing club kit at affiliated races if you aren't a member - is it banned or just frowned upon ?

If you're miles overdue and still using their name for races, that's a bit rude.

I think that's what half the problem is, people are using club names to get £2 discount on race fees when they're no longer affiliated.

So, leading home the 2nd claim guys to a 10k team win in the summer,delight turned to being GUTTED, when I found out a team mate had RATTED me out to the organisers as "Only" being 2nd claim.

 

Lucky for him Vlad the Impaler wasn't part of your team, he'd have something to say about it.

If you have purchased the kit then it is yours and you are free to wear it just as you could wear a replica football shirt for your favourite team if it is a standard race open to unattached as well as club runners. You could not of course claim to be a member of that club on the entry form or claim the cheaper entry fee.
