Regional hospital spokesman Tomás Belzunegui said Thursday that six people were in need of hospital care after being injured during the race along the 930-yard (850-meter) cobbled-street course to the bullring. The most serious injury was suffered by a 27-year-old man from the Spanish city of Valencia who was gored in the arm.

The run featuring bulls from the Victoriano del Río Cortés cattle breeder lasted 2 minutes, 49 seconds, making it the longest of this year's festival.

The nine-day San Fermin fiesta attracts revelers from around the world who test their bravery dashing through the streets with six fighting bulls.
