CONYERS, Ga. - Thousands of miles from Spain, daredevils in white outfits and red scarves dodged bulls at a Georgia horse park to get a taste of the running of the bulls.

WSB-TV reported about 3,000 people participated in the Great Bull Run on Saturday in Conyers, which is about 25 miles from Atlanta.

People on horseback herded 18 bulls into a fenced course. Many stood alongside the fence as the bulls ran by, but some tried to sprint with the animals. A few runners fell down or were knocked down by the bulls, but no serious injuries were reported.

The bull run at Georgia International Horse Park was the second U.S. event this year for the group Great Bull Run. The next stop is Dec. 7 in Baytown, Texas.
