PAMPLONA, Spain — Officials in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona say one person has been gored and five others injured in the sixth bull run of the 2019 San Fermin festival.

The dash with six bulls along cobbled streets to Pamplona's bullring Friday lasted 2 minutes and 18 seconds. Several bulls and dozens of runners slipped and fell on the 930-yard (850-meter) course.

Four people — two Americans and two Spaniards — had already been gored since the daily races started Sunday.

The nine-day San Fermin fiesta draws thousands of revelers each year from around the world. Mostly wearing white with a red sash, they test their courage by running alongside and in front of six fighting bulls that are let loose through the city streets early in the morning.
