When you hear the words “Bull Run,” you’re probably thinking of the two legendary Civil War battles that share the name. But come next August, the term might remind you of something similarly violent, though a lot less bloody. The Great Bull Run, an event inspired by the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain, will be held in several U.S. cities next summer. The event, which will feature bulls rushing through a fenced course while human participants try to stay out of their way, is set to debut August 24 in Richmond, Virginia. Events are also planned for Georgia, Texas, Florida, California, Illinois, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. We’d advise you not to wear your red t-shirt.
