On Second Thought

No bull, bit of Pamplona brought to the US

Pamplona, tucked into the northeastern corner of Spain, is a long ways away from Petersburg, Va., home to Virginia Motorsports Park some 25 miles southwest of Richmond. But as of this Saturday, the towns will have one distinct thing in common — the desire of thousands of people to run among a bunch of bulls, and the equal desire to live to tell the story.

Rugged Maniac, the Boston-based adventure racing company headquartered nearly adjacent The First Church of Christ, Scientist, recently announced plans to stage 10 Pamplona-like bull runs across the US over the next 11 months. Petersburg is the leadoff runner, followed by Atlanta (Oct. 19) and then Houston (Dec. 7).
