STICKNEY – The Great Bull Run is coming to Hawthorne Race Course in Stickney and Cicero July 12, 2014.

The event is designed to replicate the Running of the bulls in Spain where participants will sprint down a quarter-mile track with twelve 1,000-pound bulls in pursuit.

As in Spain, the run is followed by a tomato food fight: Tomato Royale.

Other activities during the day include live music, food, beer, games and other attractions.

Those not up for running with bulls are invited to watch or join in the fun as a participant in Tomato Royale.
