DADE CITY (FOX 13) -

They come from all over to face their fears.

"It is a once in a lifetime thing. I will never be able to do it again. I'll be able to tell my children in the future 'hey I did a bull run,'" said Liz Berman.

And to conquer the beast.


"You  know dying crossed my mind, but other than that, not too much," said Andrew Kiser.

You would normally see sights like this in Pamplona, Spain, but  organizers of the Great Bull Run travel from city to city providing all with a once in a lifetime opportunity to outrun these 1,500 pound bulls.


"This is a completely unique experience. You don't know how to really prepare for it except run as fast as you can," said Jessica Schmidt.

Some people's common sense kicks in. Others go all the way.

"It was a blast, absolutely, it was incredible adrenaline rush when the bulls were released. You get one of them,  it veers right towards you, it's coming at you. It's like oh boy, here we go. It's time to move it," said Andrew Kiser.

It is the thrill of the run that draws those crazy enough to join in.

"The horns. Of course the horns. We came all the way from Miami just to feel those horns," said Shawn Alam.

Once the bulls are let out people only have two choices:  run or get out of the way.

"Your mind kind of blanks when you see the bull," said Jonathon Blacklidge.

"It was crazy. It's awesome. Like everybody should do this," said Blacklidge.
