RGU: SPORT Awards Ball
A mix of prestige and mayhem involving all the sports clubs and guests; it’s an opportunity to reward all our outstanding athletes for their efforts over the season.

The most prestigious award, the Full Blue, is typically reserved for students who have played at the highest level of university sport, usually their country and in some cases Great Britain, and brought acclaim to RGU whilst doing so. Past presenters of the awards include Aberdeen FC manager Craig Brown, rugby legend Doddie Weir, swimming star Steve Parry and football legend Willie Miller.

Granite City Challenge
Granite City Challenge is the largest varsity competition in Scotland with RGU battling Aberdeen University in over 20 sports. The battle this year will take place in March and is now held across both RGU and Aberdeen campuses. Come along and get involved or support RGU to victory!

The Boat Race is a prestigious event again with Aberdeen University and RGU challenging each other to a race along the River Dee. It is a great day out especially when the sun shines, come along and get involved.
