Running_of_the_Bulls_on_Estafeta_StreetPAMPLONA officials added five to this year’s San Fermin injury tally Tuesday morning, but no gorings.

Tuesday’s encierro, or bull run, finished in only two minutes, below the average three to four minute timespan.

This year’s festival remains free of fatalities. In all, 15 have died in the encierro since record keeping began in 1924.

The festival now sees over a million visitors every year. It rose to fame with the popularity of Ernest Hemingway’s acclaimed novel The Sun Also Rises, which celebrates its 90th anniversary of publication this year.

The festival ends Thursday.
