Running with the Bull…Dawgs event slated for Saturday at Cotton District

July 17, 2014

Each July, brave souls from around the world dash through the streets of Pamplona, Spain trying to evade stampeding bulls in the festival of San Fermin’s encierro, commonly called the Running of the Bulls. For the past few years, Starkville’s Maxwell Street has seen a July a stampede of its own.

In place of bulls are the women of the Mississippi Brawl Stars roller derby team, with horns of all sizes strapped to their helmets, often armed with foam batons, water guns or both. Like the encierro runners, those trying to outrun the Brawl Stars have a small head start — but the Brawl Stars have roller skates.
