PAMPLONA (Spain) -- The fourth consecutive bull run at Pamplona’s San Fermin Festival was a success for thrill seekers.
According to the Red Cross's preliminary medical report, four people required treatment at a hospital after they were injured in Sunday's bull run. One young man, wearing a neck brace, had to be taken on a stretcher to the ambulance.
It took the bulls 2 1/2 minutes to race through Pamplona's old quarter, covering 875 meters (956 yards) in total.
The bull run ends at Pamplona’s bullring where professional bullfighters later kill the bulls.
On the first three days, there were no gorings. There are still four days.
In 2019, eight people were killed in the final festival before the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 1910, Pamplona has seen the death of 16 people in its bull runs. The last was in 2009.
Many thousands of foreign tourists visit the Pamplona festival, which was first made famous to English-speaking people by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises."
People drink, eat, attend concerts, and party late into the night after the mad rush of the bull race. Later in the day, the bulls are taken to the bullring.
