The Great Bull Run faces difficulties coming to Southwest Riverside

The Great Bull Run, an event styled after Spain’s yearly “Running of the Bulls,” may have trouble coming to Southwest Riverside due to safety concerns and a lack of necessary documentation, according to county officials.

The event would allow individuals to run in a race where they would be chased after by bulls in a secured setting and is similar to the traditional Spanish event where individuals, often villagers of the town of Pamplona, are chased by a small group of bulls through a sectioned off area of city streets.

The Americanized event goes even further in its attempt to capture aspects of Spanish culture with a tomato fight after the race. The fight is loosely based off of another Spanish event, La Tomatina, which happens in the Valencian town of Bu

    This Great Bull Run sounds like a day of fun with the family. Of course I would only watch the events but I’m sure the day would be a positive in all. Guess the mentioned it’s self would be good reason for not allowing it here in Temecula.

    15 people dead in 100 years = a 15% death rate. That’s all I have to say.

    At no time was I ever in true danger and I ran with the bulls eight times. The people running the event really made us feel secure. Furthermore, you were often running alongside them and not so much with them running right at you that unless you braved it for a bit.

    The Tomato Royale was tones of fun too. I can’t wait to do it again.
