Wiring a Bathroom

I recently added a bathroom in my basement and I am in the process of wirng it.

I am running 20amp 12/2 wire from the breaker box to the fan switch (No Light) just fan. From that switch and on the same breaker i am adding a GFI outlet on another wall. That is all that will be on that circut. My question relates to the wire between the switch and the exhaust fan. I did some searching on this and what i was told was to run a 12/3 from the switch to the exhaust fan. is this correct or do i just use 12/2. Thanks in advance! Beer 4U2

Fan

A 12/3 would allow the addition of a light at a later date in case you decided to change to a fan/light combination fixture. Just cap the red wire in the ceiling fixture and in the switch box for now.
