El Evento
There are “bulls” that chase us in our lives, but we must look forward, breathe, and finish the race. On September 23, 2017, the Hispanic League is bringing a Running of the Bulls Magnifico Mile to Winston-Salem to raise awareness and funds for its scholarship program. The scholarships allow for Hispanic/Latino students to finish their own race and not worry about any bull.

The event’s theme is from the famous Running of The Bulls, held each July in Pamplona, Spain. Each runner should come dressed as your bullish selves—make your own horns, tails, or bull masks—or dress-up as the typical Pamplona runner: all white with a red bandanna around your neck and maybe a mustache.

Each participant will have an opportunity to win a special grand prize. Come run and give students a head start so they can keep their eyes forward and finish their own race: getting a degree.

Crédito de Salud (Health)
The City of Winston Salem (COWS) has pre-approved the Running of the Bulls for employees and retirees to receive a Wellness Credit! Please send verification of participation to Susan Banville at COWS 336.748.3863.

PRIZES – First Place Male & Female – 30,000 each American Airlines Flight Miles. That gets you to Pamplona, Spain so you can do the famous Running of The Bulls yourself!

Dónde and Cuando?

The Course is out and back through the streets of Downtown Winston-Salem. Starting and Finishing on Popular St near Fiesta presented by the Hispanic League.

All proceeds from the Running of the Bulls support the efforts of the Hispanic League to provide college scholarships for deserving Latino students in our community.

Entry Fees

All runners are encouraged to pre-register 1) to give you more time to plan how you are going to run with those big ‘ol bull horns on your head and 2) to guarantee your spot at the race.
