The Nuñez del Cuvillos brought the encierros to life with the most emotion and danger so far in Sanfermines 2019
The sixth encierro on July 12 facilitated runs you dream about. It lasted two minutes and eighteen seconds and turned out to be the most spectacular run so far in Sanfermines.
Although the herd had left the corral huddled together, in Santo Domingo the bull, Palmero, fell, causing him to get up and take off running alone, which is almost always dangerous. Once in the Town Hall stretch, the six bulls joined together again and continued on to the curve of Estafeta street with no slipping and sliding.
But then the bull, Pregonero, fell with the usual consequence of becoming separated from his brothers. In the middle of this stretch another race began. The herd divided into three groups due to more slides. Two oxen led the way, followed by two others, closing off and protecting the bulls. Thanks to these spaces, the runners enjoyed great runs. In this way, they reached the curve of Telefónica and galloped on to the callejón with no problems. Two by two they finally all entered the bullring and the beginning of the end for the bulls.
First Medical Report
In spite of the many dangerous moments in this encierro, at 8:20 a.m. the official report listed four people transferred to hospital- two for contusions to an extrahospital center and one traumatism and a goring to the hospital complex of Navarra. Another runner suffered a contusion, but he refused to be taken to hospital.
