Description

Bull Run doesn't refer to the stock markets or charging bulls in Spain. It is Swedish running race that requires participants to summon "bullish" strength in order to complete the course. Locally, the event is called Tjurruset, and is a male version of a long-time female event. Falling somewhere between a sprint and a marathon, the 10.5km race is always set on a difficult course, but the exact location isn't announced until the beginning of the race. In the past, it's been characterized by rough terrain, wet or swampland and when it's dry, it's rocky. If you are "bull," though, you'll finish and earn a medal to prove it.
