On the third day, when the race fell on a weekend and gathered a lot of people, 8 people were injured, while three were injured by the horns of bulls. Vanguardia reports:
“The third and most massive enciero run of 2022 took place on a weekend, and therefore had many more runners than the previous two. It was fast and ended with three injured bulls from being hit by horns.”

During the eventful nine days of holidays, residents and tourists take part in various events with pleasure. The most famous and popular are encieros, bull races through the streets.
