The “Running of the Bulls” (Encierro), another Spanish trademark, actually began because competing animals had to be transported to the arena. Sprint with the bulls from Corrales de Santo Domingo to the Pamplona Bullring in Spain’s biggest encierro! During the San Fermin Festival (every year from July 6 to 14) in Pamplona, narrow streets are fenced off. Show up at the corrales before 7:30AM because as soon as 8:00AM hits, the bulls are let loose and the run is on! Anyone, even tourists, over 18 years old is allowed to join. It gets dangerous, and accidents are prone to happen, so proceed with caution! Participants rarely go the whole 875-meter stretch since each section of the course presents its own challenges. The bulls charge out of the pens at full energy, making the corrales one of the riskiest points to start from. Safety buffs should stay behind the fence. It’s still close to all the excitement, without all the risk.

The bull run route starts at the corrales then winds through Ayuntamiento de Pamplona, Mercaderes Street, Estafeta Street, and Telefónica (Telephone Exchange). Duck through the Callejon (corridor) to finally end at the Plaza de Toros de Pamplona (Pamplona Bullring). During San Fermin, mornings are spent at Running of the Bulls while evenings are reserved for Corridas de Toros (starting at 6:00PM). On July 5, catch budding bullfighters face young bulls in the “Novilladas.” On July 6, watch the bullfighter mounted on a horse square off against the bull in the “Rejones.” The rest of the festival, from July 7 to 14, is dedicated to the traditional corridas. Reserve tickets online and from authorized sellers for a sure seat. Prices are steep, but they go to an unforgettable experience and a worthy cause—a local old-folks home!
