The 400-year-old custom takes place every morning over eight days in the course of the San Fermin pageant in Pamplona in northern Spain. The pageant runs from July 6 to July 14. The bull run — generally known as the “encierro” — began on July 7.

The Purple Cross mentioned it assisted almost 100 individuals over the 2 runs.
Historically, the bull run was used as a means of getting the bulls from town outskirts to the bull ring.
The morning runs by the pavement of the previous city streets final between three and 10 minutes.
The occasion ends with a night bullfight, throughout which the bulls are finally killed by matadors.
The bull run is the marque occasion of the fiesta celebrated in honor of San Fermin, patron saint of Navarra. Different actions embrace live shows and parades. The weekends of the fiesta historically draw the biggest crowds, tripling Pamplona’s inhabitants of about 200,000.
Lately, animal rights teams have criticized the occasion for its therapy of the bulls.
