The Running of the Bulls is a practice that involvesrunning in front of a small group of bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a towns streets. The most famous running of the bulls is that of the seven-dayfestival of Sanfermines in honour of San Fermín in Pamplona, although they are held in towns and villages across Spain, Portugal, and in some citiesin Mexico, Mesquite, Nevada,and southern France, during the summer. The purpose of this event was in origin to transport the bulls from the off-site corrals where they had spent the night, to the bullring where they would be killed in the evening. Youngsters would jump among them to show off their bravado.
Spanish tradition says the true origin began in North-eastern Spain during the early 14th century. While transporting cattle in order to sell at the market, men would attempt to speed the process by hurrying their cattle using tactics offear and excitement. After years of this practice,the transportation and hurrying began to turn into a competition, as young adults would attempt to race in front of the bulls and make it safely to their pens without being overtaken. When the popularity of this practice increased and wasnoticed more and more by the expanding population of Spanish cities, a tradition was created and stands to this day.
