The Great Bull Run is returning to Virginia Motorsports Park on August 23rd, 2014 for the second annual running of the bulls!  Grab life by the horns and experience the rush of a lifetime as you sprint down a quarter-mile track with up to twenty-four 1,500-pound bulls hot on your heels.  Cap off your run in our insanely fun tomato food fight, Tomato Royale, then celebrate all day long in our massive festival featuring great music, tasty food, cold beer, games and attractions!  Not up for running with bulls?  No problem!  You can still watch all the action as a spectator or join in the fun as a participant in Tomato Royale!  Be sure to read our Frequently Asked Questions for the details on how the run is structured and remember: prices go up over time so don’t wait too long to sign up!
