Thrill-seekers chased by bulls in Spain's Pamplona

HISTORY: Dressed in white with red bandanas, hundreds of runners armed with adrenaline were chased by oxen and specially bred fighting bulls through the narrow streets of the city center towards the Pamplona Bullring, where the 800 meter race ends.
Thursday's run lasted 2 minutes and 35 seconds.
The feast of San Fermin dates back to the Middle Ages and has religious origins. Participants still sing to an image of the saint and ask for his blessing before the run.
Made famous by Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises, Pamplona's fiesta draws thousands of thrill-seekers and revelers from around the world to witness the morning running of the bulls during the week-long festival.
