You Can Run with the Bulls in Seattle, Just like You can in Pamplona... Almost / by Kevin Swantek

This  year the 5th Annual Running of the Bulls in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood is Saturday, July 12th. In classic Pamplona tradition, runners dressed in white pants, white shirts, and red scarves run while being chased by homemade bulls.

The race begins at approx. 1 p.m. in front of the Paragon on Queen Anne Ave. N., and runners will be chased a short fun .07 miles to Kerry Park.

If you haven't found an excuse to witness the view of Seattle from Kerry Park, then this is the perfect opportunity to check out panoramic Downtown Seattle the way it was meant seen.

This was going to be the first year that I ran with bulls, after discovering the race last year (on the exact day I was moving from Queen Anne to Greenlake. I was incredibly bummed to find out that this year's race coincided with my trip to Portland for the World Domination Summit. So it looks like I'll have to wait one more year before I can run with the bulls. I highly encourage everyone else to have some fun, and turn out for this unique little run.

Right now, shows that the weather in Seattle is going to be in the 80's with 57% humidity. So, what better way to spend a hot sticky day than running with the bulls?
