It’s time for the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain and when the bulls hit the streets over a hundred people from the area will be running in front of them.He’s a corporate lawyer from Cherry Hill by day but by night, Peter Milligan is founder of the Philadelphia Pena and Taurino group; a club dedicated to the centuries old festival known as “San Fermin.” It all got started on a dare:
“My brother and I were watching the running of the bulls on television and he said ‘I bet you wouldn’t do that’ and I said ‘I bet I would.’ Next thing I know there we were, flinching as the bulls ran by us.”
Now, 125 people from Philadelphia and South Jersey are heading to Spain with this advice:
“If you fall, don’t get up. That’s the number one way to attract the bulls.”
Milligan says it’s wildly dangerous but all worth it.
