Finally a chance to get gored and trampled without all the hassle of having to fly to Spain. Looks like Americans will have their shot to run with the bulls on US soil.

The first run will be held near Richmond, Virginia, on August 24, with about 5,000 people already signed up to sprint through a fenced-in course set up on a drag-racing strip. A second event is scheduled for October in Atlanta, with more planned for Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois, and Pennsylvania sometime in the future.” –Newser

This is so exciting. I’ve always wanted to get into running but have lacked the motivation. Knowing I have the option to put my life in the jeopardizing position of in front of a rampaging 1,000 lb killing machine I know I’ll be motivated to get a move on. And by the looks of all the events coming to America I’ve I don’t get trampled in Virginia I’ll have several other shots to get those attractive hove marks in my spine that all the chicks dig.
