A man was gored and five other people injured in the sixth bull run of the 2019 San Fermin festival Friday, officials in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona said.

The big news of the morning, however, was a sit-in protest by a number of the more experienced runners, in protest at what they describe as the "denaturing" of the bull runs, which, they say, is due to the tame bullocks that guide the fighting bulls running too fast.

Adherent has been applied for the past decade along the cobblestoned route leading to the bullring to prevent the bulls from slipping and becoming separated from the pack as they run.

Even so, the Red Cross said a total of seven people needed to be taken to hospitals for treatment, along with another 67 people who were attended to by medics on site.

Reggie Gooden, a 60-year-old native of NY, said that the bull runs have become increasingly faster over the 30 years he has attended the fiesta.

The 16-year-old turned down a professional contract with the Midlands club and was also on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain. Louie Barry , 16, is an English striker who has been on the radar of most European sides for a couple of years now.

The bulls that ran today are from the Victoriano del Río stockbreeder, and have a reputation for being fast. "They block off the bulls via an arrow formation and keep the bulls away from the runners. we're losing all the essence of the bull run".

The running of the bulls - and the nine days of seamless partying that accompanies the festival - draws about 1 million spectators to the city of 200,000 every year.

Regional hospital spokesman Tomás Belzunegui said that the six were in need of hospital care after being injured during the race along the 930-yard cobbled-street course to the bullring.

San Fermin was made globally famous when it featured in the novel "The Sun Also Rises" by US author Ernest Hemingway. Most come to party late into the night before watching hundreds test their speed and daring against the bulls each morning.
