Pamplona_bull_runPamplona’s final bull run festival of 2017, globally reputable as one of the leading festive events of Spain has left at least 10 people injured this time.

 

Though nobody had been pierced as runners, several people who were clad in white shirts with red neckties raced through the narrow city streets as they were chased crazily by a dozen bulls.

 

As many as about 2,000 people participated in this tradition that is centuries old. In this festival, specially-bred animals are released from within their pens. Thereafter, they are encouraged to race through a 875-metre stretch of this city while hundreds of runners made desperate attempts to escape getting pierced.

 

Naturally, this often leads to a stampede.

 

This event is now famous all across the globe, thanks to the novel of Ernest Hemingway, ‘The Sun Also Rises’. In fact, the event is the largest of several local events that are held throughout Spain.

 

The bull run on Friday represented the last of eight runs that commerce daily around 8 a.m. starting from 7th July till 14th July.

 

The festival included bulls from the Miura ranch and was the fastest this year. It went on for 2 minutes and 10 seconds.

 

After the morning run is over, the bulls face off with matadors in the bull ring of the city in the afternoon.
