Thrill seekers turn out for Georgia’s Great Bull Run


The Associated Press

CONYERS, Ga. — Daredevil runners dressed in white outfits with red scarves successfully dodged bulls herded through a course at a Georgia horse park.

WSB-TV reported (http://bit.ly/16n3k9e ) that about 3,000 people participated in the Great Bull Run Saturday in Conyers.

Cowboys on horseback herded 18 bulls into a fenced course lined with participants. Many stood alongside the fence as the bulls ran by, but some tried to sprint alongside the animals. A few runners fell down or were knocked down by the bulls, but no serious injuries were reported.

The bull run at Georgia International Horse Park was the second U.S. event this year for the group Great Bull Run. The next stop is Dec. 7 in Baytown, Texas. The event was inspired by the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
