Running with the Bulls - The Great Bull Run is coming to Florida

There are those who run with zombies. Some who run through fire, mud and barbed-wire.  Then there are those who run with the Bulls in Pamplona Spain.....How about running with the Bulls in the United States?

Yep, you heard me right. The Great Bull Run is coming to ten cities throughout the United States (with more to come) and on February 1st, The Great Bull Run is coming to Central Florida - at the Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City.

You can cross this adrenaline-filled experience off your bucket list without breaking the bank.This is the real deal, modeled after the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, but without all the time and money required for a trip to Europe!  Not to fear, the bulls that will run in the U.S. won’t be herded to a bullfighting ring like they are in Spain. They’ll be coming from the professional rodeo circuit — and will return there once the fun is over.
My fiance heard about this and told me instantly that he wanted to run this race. At the first suggestion, I considered joining him but lets be honest here - I am a big chicken and this race falls halfway in between runDisney's Dopey Challenge and Glass Slipper Challenge. If I was to do this, I would probably break an ankle. If you are like me, The Great Bull Runs offers more than running with bulls. Along with the Bull Run, there is also the Tomato Royale - a tomato food fight styled after La Tomatina, something that is on my bucket list!
This is my chance to throw tomatoes at my friends, family and fellow participants. If you sign up to run with the bulls, you will receive a ticket which includes entry to Tomato Royale. If you are a giant chicken like me, you can join in the fun, too by registering for the Tomato Royale ticket.

The Great Bull Run is currently $40 a person and you can sign up by selecting the city your closest to on their website
