1: The Encierro | by Anna Ghazarian | "Running of the Bulls"
2: History of Encierro...The Running of the Bulls | The Encierro was born from need: getting the bulls from outside the city into the bullring. After the launching of two rockets at 8 am, the bulls charge behind the runners for 825 metres. The run usually lasts between three and four minutes although it has sometimes taken over ten minutes, especially if one of the bulls has been isolated from his companions.
3: The crowd prays "A San Fermin pedimos, por ser nuestro patron, nos guie en el encierro dandonos su bendicion." (We ask San Fermin, being our patron saint, to guide us in the bull run and give us his blessing) and at the end they shout "Viva San Fermin!, Gora San Fermin" three time before 8am first, then when there are five minutes to go before 8am, then three minutes and one minute before the gate of the corral is opened.

11: Those that arrive early can watch the run from balconies, up close on the street or on the ground. | The late arrivals can watch the end of the race from the bull pen
12: After the bulls run through the streets, everyone ends up in the Plaza de Toros | where the bulls continue to chase the people in the ring
