Those suffering from Scottsdale bull fatigue (of the red and mechanical varieties) can buck their boredom at Running of the Bulls USA on Friday, October 14. More than 30 1500-pound bulls will run six races down a quarter-mile track in downtown Cave Creek.
Organizers expect the run to bring in a few thousand sprinters who, after signing a slew of safety releases and agreements, will be free to run for their lives while racing the bulls to the final pen.
Its the fourth time the organization has produced a bull run, loosely inspired by the 400-year-old tradition in Pamplona, Spain. Itll also be the fourth time theyve given PETA activists something to do on the weekend.
