Look Who's Running

Tired of the same old bull? Then add some spice to your life by running with a sexy new crowd during Pamplona's Festival of San Fermín! For the seventh straight year, hundreds of compassionate and fun-loving people from around the world - wearing little more than plastic bull horns - will gather in Pamplona for PETA's Running of the Nudes before the annual Running of the Bulls begins. How about slipping into something more comfortable—like your birthday suit—and joining us for this festive, cheeky event which is full of babes, not bulls? Speaking of babes, check out the profiles and pics of these hot-to-trot hotties you could be partying with in Pamplona!

Turn-Ons: Cabaret, comedies and disco music
Turn-Offs: People who hurt children or animals and people who don’t respect human or animal rights
Favourite Vegan Foods: Burgers and fries, lasagne, pizza, cakes, Belgian fries, chocolate
Reason for Participating: “I’m going to the Running of the Nudes because the ‘culture’ of bullfighting is just awful. This is what got me interested in animal rights in the first place. I saw it on TV when I was little, and I was really shocked. And I still am – it’s so brutal and plain stupid. It should be stopped as soon as possible. And it’s our job to show these people that this kind of animal abuse has to stop! And the way PETA does it is great! We show people that there is a much nicer, more peaceful alternative.”
Preparation: “I’ll try not to get fat! And I’m going to see a video in some of my classes about bullfighting. I don’t have any other special preparation yet, but I’m always willing to do something special!”
