TheVictorianos, astonishing speed

In 2014, Victoriano del Río bull-ranch, from Guadalix de la Sierra (Madrid), will take part in the Sanfermin Running of the Bulls for fifth time. In their fouth appearances up to now they have caused 2 gorings and a total of 18 injuries. This bull-breed is the fastest of all in the runnings of the bulls. They have been in the last three consecutive runnings in Sanfermin and they always run on the 12th of July. Their average time is a very fast 2min.18″ per running. They always stay close together in a tight pack and tucked in beside the bell-oxen, although 2 or 3 bulls will inevitably outpace the bell-oxen over the length of the course. It is difficult for the runners to find space in front of the horns for some close running, but the runners at least can get in front of the leading bulls even if they are very fast (an average speed of 22km/per hour, but in the Estafeta stretch the leading bull would have an average speed of some 25Km/per hour and cover the 312 meters of this stretch in 45 seconds.

Fastest running: 2´14” 10/07/2013 23,5 km/h
Slowest running: 2´21” 12/07/2012 22,34 km/h
Average time: 2´17” 22,99 km/h
Average gorings: 0,5 (2 gorings in 4 bullrunnings)
Average injuries: 4,5 (18/4)
