At least two people were gored today as thousands of daredevil runners charged ahead of six fighting bulls through the streets of Pamplona in northern Spain, a Red Cross spokesman said.
Jose Aldaba said the pair were gored by a bull that broke free from the pack just before entering the city’s bullring on the third day of the annual San Fermin festival.
They were not thought to have been seriously injured.
Several other people were treated for cuts and bruises suffered in the adrenaline-fuelled dash along the 928-yard (849m) course. Today’s run lasted just over three minutes.
The morning runs are the highlight of the festival, which became world famous with the publication of Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.
