For some it was an early start to the picturesque setting of a car park in Stirling Uni, well okay the Wallace Monument towered majestically over us but we did have to contend with a rogue Mazda that had, by rumour, never been moved in 6 months! We pondered bouncing said Mazda out of the way but when the security guards asked us what we were doing we decided against it.

Image From that early time the organisation was set up: Check Point Charlie established, Scorcher at the front gates as a welcoming guide and the tea van arrived just in time for the first of the early Clanners, decked with Satires and Lion Rampant, to ensure their place at the front of the Thistle Run convoy.

Over the course of 2 hours 140(?) minis were carefully directed, cajoled, gathered and repaired in a rather tight wee space (around said Mazda) until just before 10.30, where upon your compere for the day, Collin X, delivered the run instructions in his own inimitable style and then we were off to Oban, with the departure covered live by Central FM.

We at the miniclan are delighted to announce that the 2016 Thistle Run has raised a record-breaking £8000 for the charities, CLAPA and RNLI Anstruther.

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed so generously to the event, and also to all of our volunteers who have spent months planning and organising the day to make it go as smoothly as possible.
