Is the Bull Run on your bucket list?

Would you like to face the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as you run beside 1,500-pound bulls stampeding down a quarter-mile course?  Then you can celebrate your accomplishment with thousands of thrill-seekers in a massive, day-long festival that also features an insane tomato food fight, Tomato Royale!

Sounds pretty fun right?  I wish that I could be there to run alongside you, but sadly I have prior commitments that day and won't be able to attend.  I do however have a FREE race entry to give away to one of my lucky readers :)  Drop a comment below letting me know why you've always wanted to run with bulls or tell me about the craziest thing you've ever done!  There's also a consolation prize for the rest of you, use code  "ENDS" for $10 off of admission tickets.

Still need a little convincing?  Here's some info from the The Great Bull Run Website:

The Great Bull Run can be summed up in four simple words: Running. With. Real. Bulls.  This isn’t a charity 5k or a simulated bull run with people dressed in bull costumes chasing you down the street.  This is the real deal, modeled after the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, but without all the time and money required for a trip to Europe!  Now you can finally cross this adrenaline-filled experience off your bucket list without breaking the bank.  Pretty awesome, no?

But there’s more to The Great Bull Run than just running with bulls!  Join thousands of fellow thrill-seekers in this massive day-long festival featuring bands, games, food, beer and, of course, Tomato Royale, our version of the insanely fun tomato food fight, La Tomatina.  After all, surviving an epic run with 1,500-pound bulls is a pretty good reason to celebrate.  But don’t worry if you’ve got a lower threshold for excitement; you can leave the running to the adrenaline junkies and opt to be a spectator or join the Tomato Royale fun!

So what are you waiting for?  Tell me your best story for your chance at running with the bulls for FREE!!! (contest winner will be announced Saturday July 5th so hurry!)


  1. Pick me!!! I've always wanted to travel to Pamploma to participate, and since life has a way of changing your plans, I figured this is as close as I'll ever get to crossing this off my bucket list!, I figure my running pace will skyrocket at this event. :) This is by far the craziest thing I've done. Tnanks for the opportunity.

  2. I've heard about this race but am too scared to do it.

  3. Did you ever determine a winner for this? I am thinking I want to do it now since it is local. Who can pass up the opportunity to throw tomatos at strangers.
