Thrill seekers don't have to go all the way to Spain to feel the fear—the Great Bull Run is coming to Virginia.
From Pamplona to Petersburg: A running of the bulls event is coming up... a little closer to home.
Organizer Rob Dickens says he's hoping for a big turnout, and says that he's always dreamed of re-creating the madness of the annual event in Spain.
"It just became something I always wanted to do and a lot of my friends always wanted to do, but we've never been able to actually make it happen," he says.
Twenty-four bulls will chase runners through a fenced course, and while Dickens says safety is the main concern, he's not worried.
"I don't expect there to be a major threat of goring at our events because we're not sharpening the bull's horns to razor sharp tips," he says.
So far, more than 5,000 people have signed up for the August 24 event at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg.
