Thistle Run 2011 - Sunday the 29th May.

Blair Drummond Safari Park to Fort William

2011 was the return to Blair Drummond for the start to yet another epic Thistle Run.
Due to increased numbers the events team had to seek out a new end point, the favourtite was Fort Willam.

After meetings with the council we were convinced Fort Willam would be a great venue to end the 12th thistle run.

193 minis turned up on the morning of the run but due to conditions all 193 did not make it to Fort william.
a few text messages were recieved saying thank you for a great run but we are heading home due to conditions.
For all those who made the journey to Fort William, we thank you. the show and shine was packed and the public were there to see all the minis.

With fundraising, the raffle and extras from subs the funds raised were just over £6000, both Lochaber Mountain Rescue and the neo natal ward Southern general will greatly benifit from these funds.

We would like to thank all who attended and a special thanks to all who raised funds for both the nominated charities.
