THE GREAT BULL RUN CAN BE SUMMED UP IN FOUR SIMPLE WORDS.
Running. With. Real. Bulls. This isn’t a charity 5k or a simulated bull run with people dressed in bull costumes chasing you down the street. This is the real deal, modeled after the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, but without all the time and money required for a trip to Europe. With this epic event now in Chicago, you can finally cross this adrenaline-filled experience off your bucket list without breaking the bank! Pretty awesome, no?
Too scared to run with bulls? It’s not as dangerous as you think. In fact, there have been only fifteen deaths in the Pamplona running of the bulls in the past 103 years! Even so, we’ve added significantly more safety precautions for The Great Bull Run so that ANYBODY can run and join in the fun! Plus, unlike the running of the bulls in Spain, our bulls aren’t killed after the event or otherwise abused in any way.
But there’s more to The Great Bull Run than just running with bulls! Join thousands of fellow thrill-seekers in this massive day-long festival featuring mechanical bulls, dance parties, and plenty of beer! After all, surviving an epic run with 1,500-pound bulls is a pretty good reason to celebrate. But don’t worry if you’ve got a lower threshold for excitement; you can leave the running to the adrenaline junkies and opt to be a spectator where you can watch all the crazy action from a safe distance!
