“Running Of The Bulls” Canceled For The First Time Since The 1930s

This week, the San Fermin Bull Running Festival would normally be happening in Pamplona, Spain.

However, like many other major, annual events,  the “Running of the Bulls” has been canceled this year because of coronavirus concerns.

This will be the first time since the Spanish Civil War in the 1930’s that the festival will be cancelled.

For those unfamiliar, the annual tradition is typically an 8-day affair where participants called “mozos” run 930 yards from the market to the bull ring and try not to get trampled by the packs of stampeding bulls.

That’s the length of over nine football fields!

The event was originally cancelled in April because of Spain’s high Covid-19 infection rates, so instead, the town will instead air reruns of past races.
