If, like BarChick, you like the idea of being chased by a group of around 12 irritable bulls then this is the one for you (BarChick’s dad goes every year)! Whilst wearing a white shirt and trousers with a red neckerchief the aim is to try and slap the bull on the back with a newspaper… but avoid touching the horns or tail as you will offend the locals. Make sure you look where you are running as it’s easy to run into things! Website
