Pamplona-like bull runs coming to the United States Dan Leberfeld

According to the Associated Press, bull runs are coming to the United States.

“Organizers of a new event planned for several U.S. cities plan to unleash bulls to sprint through fenced-in courses as daredevils try to avoid being trampled,” wrote the AP.

“The Great Bull Run is inspired by the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. It’s set to kick off Aug. 24 at a drag-racing strip south of Richmond, Va. A second event is planned for Oct. 19 at an Atlanta-area horse park that hosted events for the 1996 Olympics. More events are planned later for Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois and Pennsylvania.”

Jets coach Rex Ryan, his wife, and one of his sons, participated in the legendary bull run in Pamplona last month.
