Run With Real Bulls!
The Great Bull Run can be summed up in four simple words: Running. With. Real. Bulls. This isn’t a charity 5k or a simulated bull run with people dressed in bull costumes chasing you down the street. This is the real deal, modeled after the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, but without all the time and money required for a trip to Europe! With events throughout the United States (and more on the way), you can finally cross this adrenaline-filled experience off your bucket list without breaking the bank. Pretty awesome, no?
Too scared to run with bulls? It's not as dangerous as you think. In fact, there have been only 15 deaths in the Pamplona running of the bulls in the past 102 years! Even so, we've added significantly more safety precautions for The Great Bull Run so that ANYBODY can run and join in the fun! Plus, unlike the running of the bulls in Spain, our bulls aren't killed after the event or otherwise abused in order to make them run. Please read our Frequently Asked Questions for more details.
Grab Life By The Horns!
But there’s more to The Great Bull Run than just running with bulls! Join thousands of fellow thrill-seekers in this massive day-long festival featuring bands, games, food, beer and, of course, Tomato Royale, our version of the insanely fun tomato food fight, La Tomatina. After all, surviving an epic run with 1,500-pound bulls is a pretty good reason to celebrate. But don’t worry if you’ve got a lower threshold for excitement; you can leave the running to the adrenaline junkies and opt to be a spectator or join the Tomato Royale fun!
