Running With the Bulls in Cave Creek, 2/8/14

1 of 36
Running With the Bulls made its way to Cave Creek this past weekend. The three-day event was filled with multiple bull runs to attract adrenaline junkies who wanted to try out their legs in a sprinting match against large, horned bovine creatures.

Each start began with six bulls out of the gate and once those bulls were near the finish line, another six bulls were let loose -- because, BULLS! Fences surrounded the running track, which were easy for runners to climb onto if they needed to bail out to avoid a horn to the buttocks. The objective was to run WITH the bulls as opposed to just simply running from them, but once a runner is overcome by a bull, it seemed unlikely that they could keep up with them for long without getting trampled.
