The famous Running of the Bulls is an annual event July 7-14 in Pamplona. The Running of the Bulls is part of the Fiesta of San Fermin that began way back in 1591. The original purpose was to move the bulls into the arena. A handful of brave people would run in front of the bulls. At 8 am every morning the bulls are let loose from the corral at one end of town and herded about a half mile through the streets of Pamplona to the stadium. The run lasts two to three minutes. Who do you think can run faster, a bull or a person?
