Running Of The Bulls 2011: Bulls Run Wild Through The Streets Of Pamplona (PHOTOS)

Thousands flocked to Pampalona, Spain this year for the annual "Running of the Bulls," risking life and limb to participate in tradition.

The festival began Wednesday, but continued on Thursday, July 7 and Friday, July 8, with the first famous runs through the city's streets. According to the AP, 6 people have were injured in the running, as one person was gored.

PAMPLONA, Spain — An Australian man was gored in the leg and six other people were injured Friday as daredevils ran with fighting bulls at the San Fermin festival in Pamploma.

The second of eight mad dashes at Spain's most famous summer festival featured bulls known for being fast and prone to poking people with their horns.

The Navarra regional government said on its website that besides the 25-year-old gored man, six other people were treated at hospitals, most of them foreigners. None of their names or hometowns were given.

Two Americans aged 22 and 21 – the first with an injured right leg, the second with a hurt lip – were treated and released. The other four were a Briton from Birmingham, an Italian from Rome, another Australian and a Spaniard, all with minor injuries from falls or being trampled.
