Ran with the bulls in 85, the guys who do it all the time, stay in the center of the "lane" all the newbies, crowd to the sides, thinking it's safer, and trip over themselves and then get gored

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Go chase the cheese in England. It's not safer but, you'll probably laugh more.

"Garments: Use comfortable clothes and sneakers or sport shoes. Do not carry any other items (backpacks, cameras, etc.)with you.




Ask experts runners for advice: The running is neither a joke nor an opportunity for media coverage. The risks are enormous, and the mass attendance of runners makes it even more dangerous. It takes many years of practice to become a good runner.




Getting in and out of the flow: Getting into the flow of runners is as important as getting out of the way. Get in gradually, as the other runners get out. Or get straight in, from a standing start.




Beware of falling: Bulls are not the only danger. Mainly, it's the number of runners. The chances of stumbling and falling are very high. In fact, most of the people who are injured during the run have fallen and been trampled over by other runners. You have to look in front of you, behind you and on the ground. Once you are in the herd, it's safest to remain close to the bulls because there will be no runners in front of you. If you fall, just curl up and do not move until someone taps you on the shoulder. If you're near a bull and you fall, do not try to get up. If you curl up in a ball, the bull will evade you and continue running. Getting up will cause the bull to attack you. This is the most common mistake made by runners


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The Running Rules:



An edict issued by the mayors office details the following rules concerning the running of the bulls:

Those who are less than 18 years old are forbidden to run.

Crowding the fence is not allowed.

All doors along the runway must be closed.

No one can remain in the runway who is drunk or drugged or who in any other way represents a danger to the rest.

One cannot carry things into the runway.

Runners must be dressed correctly.

It is forbidden to call to the bulls or in any way attract their attention either in the runway or in the ring.

Taking photos from inside the runway or from the fences during the encierro is not allowed without permission from the authorities."

I ran from a bull not an entire flock/herd of bulls, hence I am from a small town where farming (Uncles etc. live on farms) is dominant. Wasn't fun either, I thought I was going to get it good, thank God for wood and wooden fences and my ability to leap that sob like Jordan.

My only advice would be if you do get hit make sure you flip over the bull so you don't get gored again or trampled, then again most likely there will be two or more behind that bull ready to gore the s*** outta ya.

One more thing watch Real TV where it shows guys getting f***ed up from those damn things it might change your mind.

Good luck.

Man, I did a similar trip for my 18 B-day, mu best friend and I gor 45 day Euro pass train ticket (I amnot sure they still offer it) from our parents as a graduation gifts and we hit the road, as Underdog stated, I don't remeber half the trip. It was awesome, however, I did not run with the bulls. Have fun and enjoy Ibiza and make sure you bring and cary a condom all the time, it is that wild overthere. Each day is a new day and each day desrves a new chick or whatever rings your bells.

I have been to the UC for a Bulls game back in the day, it was a good time I do not know about running with them though, they are pretty athletic, and I do not think I could keep up
