An estimated 4,000 people took part in the Great Bull Run Saturday, the first of 10 events in the U.S. based on the popular Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Participants raced down a dirt racetrack in rural Virginia, chased by the 1,000-pound animals. One person was trampled and knocked unconscious. While many wore the traditional white shirt and red bandana of Pamplona, others opted to wear everything from U.S. flags to superhero costumes. Forty percent of the runners were women, including New Yorker Cat Jones, who thought it was such a "rush" that she paid $30 to run again in the afternoon. Expect this new tradition to come to Florida soon! It's one of the states that will participate in it!
