RUNNERS journeyed through Blair Drummond Safari Park during an event held last month.

The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) organised a family fun run for the second time and more than 120 people signed up to take part.

Participants chose either 3km or 5km and started at Briarlands Farm, following the route around the safari park.

The day started with torrential rain in the morning, but by the afternoon the sun was shining for the start of the run.

The event volunteers were treated to burgers courtesy of Fallaninch Farm Butchers and, at the end of the course, each runner received a completion medal and a carton of milk provided by Graham’s Family Dairy.

Over £1,300 was raised for RHET Forth Valley which will go towards taking 13 schools from the area out to real, working farms to learn more about where their food comes from and how it is produced.

RHET is a charity that educates young people about food, farming and the countryside and it operates throughout Scotland.
