Glen Ellyn resident Laurel Arlis (second from right) takes part in the Tomato Royale on July 12 as part of the Great Bull Run at Hawthorne Race Course in Cicero.

Arlis did not run with the bulls, but said she would next year.

The festival featured a quarter-mile track with 18 bulls, modeled after the event in Pamplona, Spain.

After the run, organizers dumped 30,000 pounds of tomatoes into a pile for participants to throw at each other.
