All throughout the year, but particularly during local festivals, a number of bull-related sports and events take place all over Spain. While the festivities vary, the bull-related events most invariably involve thrill seekers throwing themselves in front of a herd of bulls while the agitated animals chase them through the streets. The most famous of these events is the “Running of the Bulls” that takes place during the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona. In the seaside town of Denia in the province of Alicante, 600 km south of Pamplona, a different type of bull running takes place — one that has more to do with swimming than fighting. It is called Bous a la Mar — literally, “bulls to the sea”.
