In today’s Running of the Bulls, we paid special attention to one runner in the final stretch leading down into the bullring. With his rolled-up newspaper, this runner maintained the fast speed of the dun-colored bull from the end of Estafeta Street all the way to the entrance of the arena. Only when he found himself blocked by one of the steer did this runner come to a halt. Luckily, the bull did not touch him.
On his run, this runner had to avoid some bodies who were standing more like spectators watching events from the sidelines and also some runners who had fallen on the ground, but he managed to maintain his fast pace without any let up.
At yesterday’s Running of the Bulls with the Conde de la Maza bull-ranch, that same runner also managed to enter the arena with the bull just centimeters behind him, as we can see in this photo from photographer, Pío Guerendiáin.
