PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — Thousands of people have raced alongside six fighting bulls in the second running of the bulls at Spain's world-famous San Fermin festival, without anyone being gored.

Spanish Red Cross spokesman Alfonso Contin said one person had a leg injury after falling in the frenzied dash Tuesday through the narrow winding streets of the northern city of Pamplona.

One person was gored in the opening run Monday.

Dozens of people are injured each year in the 8 a.m. runs along a 930-yard (850-meter) course from a holding pen to Pamplona's bull ring. Most are hurt in falls.

Fifteen people have died from gorings since record-keeping began in 1924.

The nine-day street-partying festival was immortalized in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel "The Sun Also Rises" and attracts thousands of foreign tourists.
