GoldenPalace.com in Pamplona Bull Run!
The origins of the bull running are lost in the mists of time, but there are mentions of it from as far back as the 13th and 14th Centuries. The Bull Run, also known as Encierro, involves running in front of bulls down an 1/2 mile stretch of cobbled streets of a section of the old town of Pamplona. The biggest day is July 7th, when thousands of people accompany the effigy of Saint Fermin along the streets of Pamplona. Each morning's event starts at 8 a.m. with competitors are wearing all white, with a red bandana tied about their necks and a red sash tied around their waist. The runners gather in an area at the beginning of the route called Cuesta de Santo Domingo, where they sing an ode before a statue of San Fermin placed in a niche in a wall there: "We ask San Ferm?n, as our Patron, to guide us through the Bull Run and give us his blessing." Anyone who survives a close encounter with panicky bull is said to have been protected by San Fermin's cloak.
