The Running of the Bulls (in Spanish encierro, from the verb encerrar, to lock/shut up, to pen) is a practice that involves running in front of six bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town’s streets. The most famous running of the bulls is that of the nine-day festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, although they are held in towns and villages across Spain, Portugal, and in some cities in Mexico and southern France, during the summer. Unlike bullfights, which are performed by professionals, anyone may participate in an encierro.
