Festival of San Fermin 2010 (Day 2): Bull Running

Yesterday, we published several pictures of Spanish men and women celebrating the annual festival of San Fermin. As mentioned, one of the core attraction of the festival is bull running

The running of the bulls involves hundreds of people running in front of six bulls and another six steers down an 825-meter stretch of narrow streets of a section of the old town of Pamplona. The run ends in the Pamplona's bullring taking a mean time of around 3 minutes where the bulls are held until the afternoons bullfight when they would be killed.

Bull running is a very dangerous event. Since 1925, 15 people have been killed during the event and every year between 200 and 300 people are injured during the run.
