The rapid pace of the bulls over the second half of this sixth Running of the Bulls of 2017, did not allow for much fancywork or frills. Only those runners who were in an excellent physical condition were able to keep up to the pace of the steamrolling Victoriano de Rio bulls and even then, not for very long. This can be clearly seen in this sequence of shots with the runner in the green necktie, a regular experienced runner on this stretch. He displays some fine running in front of the horns of the bulls at the end of the Estafeta stretch but he is soon caught by the bulls as they charge ahead.
