On each morning of the centuries-old festival, over a thousand people, many wearing traditional white shirts with red scarves, line the narrow streets at 8am (0600 GMT) to run from half a dozen specially bred bulls heading for the bull ring, where the animals are killed later in the day.
The route runs for 875 m (950 yards) through Pamplona's medieval streets, though most runners will sprint little more than 40 metres before being overtaken by the stampeding herd.
On Thursday, bulls bred at the Victoriano del Rio ranch in Guadalix, outside Madrid, were used in the run, which lasted just over two minutes.
Thousands of runners, dressed head to toe in white, with bright-red neckerchiefs, gather every year for the traditional morning run, after which the animals are kept in the Bullring until the afternoon's fights.
Among those who were hospitalised this year after being injured by a bull's horns was an American who was wounded in the neck while taking a selfie.
