um the bulls hit a bunch of hairpin turns and go flyin into the wall which pisses them off fast (dead mans corner)

ran with the bulls, look at the pics haha im like 2 feet from them (but that is in arena right after the run but the only way to get in is to run in with the bulls)

cool man looks like fun. Do you need a permit to participate or do you just walk up and get in the crowd?

Wondering that, too. And how does everybody know to wear the same outfit? That would be embarrassing to show up and find out everybody picked white pants and shirt with a red bandana from their closet that morning. :p

as long as your not falling down drunk or breaking certain rules (be there by 7 am, no cameras allowed, etc) you just show up and run.....and the official outfits are sold all over town but you can wear whatever youw ant really. And a lot of the white shirts are dirty because during opening ceremonies you get tons of sangria and wine dumped on you so dont expect the white to stay white after you buy it :) Def recommend this trip even if you just watch the run...the fiesta is incredible and in my opinion literally cannot be duplicated
