PAMPLONA’S San Fermin festival concluded this morning with the fastest of this year’s eight bull runs, clocking in at two minutes and five seconds.
There were no gorings today, leaving the festival’s final number of goring victims at 10.
Every year, over a million spectators flock to this city of about 200,000 to attend the legendary festival.
Many visitors come to risk life and limb in the early morning bull runs through Pamplona’s narrow streets, while others come to enjoy the spectacle and revelry of the eight-day festival.
Immortalised in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises, the San Fermin festival has become controversial in recent years as animal rights activists have denounced the treatment of the festival’s bulls.
