The Great Bull Run brings the thrill of Pamplona's historic event to cities across the United States. Modeled after the Running of the Bulls, this one-day event enables participants to race live bulls, keeping one step ahead of the charging animals to finally prove that toes are better for running than hooves. While the historic Pamplona event has had few serious injuries in its 102 years of existence, The Great Bull Run staff takes even more precautions to ensure runners stay smiling from beginning to end. Additionally, the bulls are given the full respect they deserve, and are not antagonized or harmed before, during, or after the run.

Following the race, runners and newcomers can gather together for a good old-fashioned food fight. Tomato Royale arms entrants with juicy fruit that they can fling at each other. Additional post-run activities include an after-party, live entertainment, and games as well as food and beverages.

Riding a flyboard might make adrenaline seekers feel as though they’re inside a prototypical, water-powered Iron Man suit. They take to local waters with their feet strapped into a main board that shoots powerful jets, and their arms control the board’s direction with two stabilizing sprayers. Atop the columns of pressurized water, riders can reach speeds of 18.5 miles per hour and heights of nearly 30 feet, enough to chase down gulls escaping with stolen hot dogs. With skillful manipulations of the stabilizers, boarders can perform spins, flips, and even cuts through the water.
