Running with the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain

Pamplona, Spain is hosting its annual Festival of San Fermin, most famous for its “Running of the Bulls“, an 800-meter chaotic dash from corral to bullring through the narrow streets of Pamplona. Once the bulls arrive at the Plaza de Toros, they are again corralled until the afternoon’s bullfights (corridas). The festival, started in the sixteenth century, opened this year on July 6th, and more than a dozen participants have been seriously injured so far, with one death (due to a fall from a wall). It will continue until July 14th.
