The third and most popular running of San Fermin's bulls, which was attended by bulls from Jose Escolar ranch, took 2 minutes and 30 seconds. He has completed the first gorings for this edition. One on the leg and one in the genital region. According to health sources, the injured are more than 25 years old.
It was Saturday, and it was evident that the crowds were higher than usual for a sunny and cool morning in Pamplona. Jose Escolar's bulls who had previously turned around in Santo Domingo for three of their five Sanfermines participations, have now left the Gas corrals. They have quickly started their race towards Sanfermines without much effort.
Mercaderes curve has seen the race experience its most distressing moments, with several young people being trampled and at minimum one of them gored. The herd is now stretching and one of its horned brothers has fallen. Another brother has kicked a young man who stood behind him. This is unusual in fighting bulls.
Due to the high pace and large number of runners, there have been many falls along the route. Two people were hurt by a pole on the Mercaderes curve in their leg, one in the genital, and six others were transferred due to injuries or bruises.
Estafeta has made progress, and a halter was used to advance the bulls ahead of them, until they were left behind. The whole herd was stretching out, leaving gaps for runners.
The bulls, who were very prominent at Telefonica, began to throw themselves towards the right side fence. However, they did not lose any young men. Another boy running on the right was hit by a bull as he went down the alley. The bulls rushed to the pigsties once they reached the square.
