San Fermín fiesta off to safe start in Pamplona
By:
thinkSpain , Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Pamplona's 'San Fermín' bull-running fiesta got off to a good start this morning with six bulls from the Alcurrucén ranch making a 'clean' run lasting just two and a half minutes.
 
As on the other four occasions that they have run through the streets of Pamplona, the Alcurrucén bulls caused no serious injuries and were able to run relatively unimpeded through the city streets despite it being the opening day of the fiesta.
 
There was one moment of danger when the lead bull fell just as it reached the Town Hall square, landing on top of one of the runners and causing confusion amongst the bulls in the following pack, but no-one was seriously injured.

Estafeta Street saw some fabulous runs, with gaps between the bulls and several runners falling in front of them.  One of the bulls got separated from the pack, allowing runners to get really close and causing major excitement amongst the crowd, but no major incidents occurred.
