Excerpt from the Site.

The Great Bull Run is coming to Elk River Extreme Motor Park in the Twin Cities area on June 21st, 2014!  Grab life by the horns and experience the rush of a lifetime as you sprint down a quarter-mile track with up to twenty-four 1,500-pound bulls hot on your heels.  Cap off your run in our insanely fun tomato food fight, then celebrate all day long in our massive festival featuring great music, tasty food, cold beer, games and attractions!  Not up for running with bulls?  No problem!  You can still watch all the action as a spectator or join in the fun as a participant in Tomato Royale!  Be sure to read the details on how the run is structured and remember: prices go up over time so don’t wait too long to sign up!

Try for the Volunteer Deadline!  60 lucky people get to do it for free while helping out at the Festival.
