No gor­ings in fastest bull run at Pam­plona

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

PAM­PLONA, Spain (AP) — The sev­enth bull run of this year’s San Fer­min fes­ti­val took place Satur­day with­out any run­ners be­ing gored, health au­thor­i­ties in the north­ern Span­ish city of Pam­plona said.

The mad dash of six bulls with hun­dreds of run­ners in the tra­di­tional out­fit with a red sash lasted 2 min­utes,12 se­conds — mak­ing it the fastest of this year’s runs.

A re­gional hospi­tal spokesman said Satur­day’s bull run was “the calmest in terms of med­i­cal is­sues of this year’s fes­ti­val.”

The nine-day San Fer­min fi­esta that was im­mor­tal­ized by Ernest Hem­ing­way in his novel “The Sun Also Rises” at­tracts about a mil­lion spec­ta­tors ev­ery year. Most come to party late into the night be­fore watch­ing hun­dreds test their speed and dar­ing against the bulls each morn­ing.
