Great Bull Run planned for the United States

ATLANTA (AP) - Organizers of a new event planned for several U.S. cities plan to unleash bulls that will sprint down a track alongside daredevils who will try to avoid being trampled.

The Great Bull Run is inspired by the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

Injuries are common at bull runs, but organizers of the U.S. events say theirs will be different, with several safety features. They plan to put fencing up and hold events at venues such as auto racing tracks and horse parks.

The first event is set for Aug. 24 at a drag-racing strip south of Richmond, Va. Another is set for Oct. 19 at an Atlanta-area horse park used in the 1996 Olympics. More events are planned later for Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois and Pennsylvania.
