Bulls chase revelers through the streets of Pamplona, Spain on July 10, 2007the fourth day of the running of the bulls during the San Fermmn festival.

The bull run, called an encierro, takes place at eight every morning from July 7 to 14. Six bulls from Spain's top breeding ranches run some 974 yards (835 meters) with two groups of oxen through town to the city's bullring.

Though the average run is only about three minutes, injuries are common, as the runners try to keep ahead of the bulls in the narrow streets.
