The Bulls Are Back: Running with the Bulls Announces Weekend Festival in Arizona
America’s original bull running event offers big prize money this year.
Cave Creek, AZ (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
For the third year in a row, thousands of adrenaline junkies will skip the trip to Pamplona this week and vie for over $10,000 in prize money by pitting themselves against twelve of the biggest, baddest bulls on a quarter mile course on October 25-27 in Cave Creek, just outside of Phoenix, Arizona.
Runners will also have the chance to run for more than bragging rights. They can win at least $500 for each of the twelve races that will be held over the weekend plus a $5,000 grand prize for the most points scored by a runner over two days.
“The Running with the Bulls Festival in Cave Creek has been wildly successful over the years,” says Phil Immordino the event organizer, “And this year it’s going to be about big bulls, big bucks, and big fun.”
Immordino has taken on a new partner this year, Chuck Warren of Silver Bullet LLC. They have expanded the event this year to feature six races on Saturday and six races on Sunday. This will accommodate twice as many runners as they have had in the past. Attendance is expected to double as an estimated 10,000 people from all over the United States will descend on Cave Creek, a community just fifteen minutes from Phoenix.
Warren, who ran in Cave Creek last year, liked the experience so much he partnered up with Immordino. “We are excited about expanding this to three or four other markets in the next year,” explains Warren. “We should have a couple of other cities wrapped up in the next several weeks.”
The weekend festival not only features the heart-pumping Running with the Bulls, but it also includes two days of the Great Bull Battle of the Bands, lots of great food, drinks, exhibitors, entertainment, and rides.
The Running with the Bulls USA has received worldwide coverage for their past events and great sponsorship support. The past success has many previous runners anxiously awaiting October date.
“We have had hundreds of past runners email us wanting to know when we were going to hold our next race, says Immordino,” and added, “But they don’t have to wait any longer. We are excited about bringing the Running With Bulls Festival back this fall.”
