After the awards to was the clubs annual sponsored fun run. Almost 80 people participated, running a 500m route in the park. Some only managed one lap, but some of the S1 lads (Dylan Kemp and Logan Vavangas) ran 10 km in the allotted hour, while club president Paul Vavangas ran 15 km!
So far the day raised almost £3,000 for the club funds from sponsorship and the BBQ!

Finally to close this season, Ellon Rugby had its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday at the Academy in Ellon. Also on that evening the club held a SGM for one specific reason. To vote on becoming a SCIO or Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This motioned was voted on with 100% agreeing and from now Ellon Rugby is a registered Charity with 11 Trustees managing the club.
