About This Activity

The Chippewa Valley Roller Girls are hosting our first Running of the Bulls 5K, a Roller Derby version of the famous Encierro, or Running of the Bulls, held every year in Pamplona, Spain. During our race through Altoona's Cinder City Park, runners will be chased by "Roller Bulls" armed with red paint markers to mark their hits. Awards will be given out to the runners with the most and the fewest hits. Runners are encouraged to wear white. 
Costumes are welcome!
Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Event details and schedule

The running of the Bulls will start at 8am. Some roller girl "bulls" will be at the starting gate to motivate the runners. Others will be found at locations along the trail. They will tag their hits with bingo-card daubers (yes, prepare to be daubbed!). You can try to run where they can't catch you (off the trail roller skates don't work very well) but please don't hit or run into the bulls. Bring white clothing - we will provide a white t-shirt and red bandana for runners. You may also wish to wear a costume. We encourage it!

This is a family-friendly fun-run event. Proceeds will benefit Feed My People food bank.

We'll have liability waivers and registration on site the morning of the event. Please try to arrive before 7:45am.
