  About the race – Although the Running of the Bulls looms large in people's imaginations, it's actually quite short-lived. The San Fermin Festival stretches out over a full week, but the race only takes up about the first three minutes of each day. The total length of the course is just yards, which is equal to about half a mile.   Bringing the running of the bulls in from Spain has never been illegal, exactly, but importing a cultural event with centuries of history tied to a specific place is more than a little impractical.

To the running of the bulls Should I have blown through the streets to where you are? I'll always try to blame the running of the bulls But honey the dress you wore was red, so this is how we say goodbye The dress you wore was red, so honey this is how we say goodbye This is how we say goodbye in this life And this is how I say goodbye this time.
