Race Description

Hispanic League Running of the Bulls 5K and Fun Run
For more information: hispanicleague.org or call 336.770.1228

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 5K and Fun Run 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 5K 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 5K & Fun Run for employees and retirees to receive a Wellness Credit! Please send verification of participation to Susan Banville at COWS 336.748.3863.

Dónde and Cuando?

The Running of the Bulls 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, taken from its namesake event in Pamplona Spain, will feature a runners rumble in the post-modern Whitaker Park area along the beautifully landscaped and tree lined Reynolds Blvd.

The combination out-and-back and loop 5K course is suitable for runners of any ability – flat and fast – and stroller friendly. The out and back 1 mile Fun Run on Shorefair Drive will delight all participants. 5K race participants will have an opportunity to win a special grand prize.

All proceeds from the Running of the Bulls 5K and Fun Run support the efforts of the Hispanic League to provide college scholarships for deserving Latino students in our community.

Bulls and runners will rumble around the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Parking Lot off of Shorefair Drive between 27th and Deacon Blvd. The combination of an out-and-back and loop 5K course is suitable for runners of any ability – flat and fast!
