Bull Run

Where: Pamplona, Spain

When: July

Here’s one for old crazy folk, or young people who think nothing bad will ever befall them! Around a half-mile of old-Pamplona streets are walled off and a couple of dozen cattle and a smattering of bulls are let loose to stampede down to the city’s bull ring.

As stupid things to do go, this is right up there amongst them. As cruel things to do go, this is also right up there amongst them!

Runners wear white, possibly so that they can show off how much blood lossage they’ve incurred. I think I’ll stick to the Tomato Fight thank you very much!

Have a look at this is you’re not too faint-hearted:
