Registration now open for Downtown Running of the Bulls 5k

The Downtown Management District (DMD) has invited the talented group of Bulls to once again chase the willing public for the Third Annual Downtown Running of the Bulls 5k and Fun Run, set for October 19, 2019.

“Since the beginning, the public has asked us if real bulls will chase people, so now the secret is out that these bulls are just working a gig for us. But, we’re embracing the performance aspect and going Hollywood this year,” said Rudy Vasquez, Marketing and Communications Manager.

The DMD will have a costume contest with cash prizes going to the top three (3) best Hollywood character costumes with $100 for 1st place, $50 for second and $25 for third place. Come dressed as your favorite film character and have fun.

Registration is open via this link. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome to run among the bulls and earn your medals for top finishing runners in seven (7) age brackets and three (3) fastest teams. Participants can also run for fun, and pets are welcome.

Registration for $25 includes a delicious post-race breakfast meal, an exclusive draw string bag, t-shirt, koozie, and more. The activity zone will include a bounce house, music, photo booth and costume contest.

Officials with DMD added that they are actively seeking volunteers interested in participating in the Running of the Bulls. Volunteers will have an opportunity to support downtown in a fun event and will receive a free t-shirt, and meal for their efforts.

Volunteers interested in helping out can call the DMD at (915) 400-2294
