    On each day of the festival six bulls are released at 8:00 a.m. (0600 GMT) to run from their corral through the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town over an 850-meter (yard) course. Ahead of them are the runners, who try to stay close to the bulls without falling over or being gored.

    One of the six bulls used in the run today was late coming out of the gate. Another got separated from the pack early in the race, did a U-turn and gored a nearby runner, lifting his body off the ground and creating moments of fear and tension. Once the bull gained steam again, he was harassed by runners on his way to the bull ring.

    After nine days of partying, the people of Pamplona meet in the City Hall Plaza at midnight on 14 July, singing the traditional mournful notes of the Pobre de Mí ('Poor Me'), in a candlelit ending. The city mayor closes the festival with participants lighting a candle and removing their red handkerchief as the song is played by the local band, followed by a fireworks display at the city hall. This closing ceremony tradition started out in the 1920s
