Bulls in the Streets
May 4 @ 11:00 am$5 – $15
Bulls in the Streets, a premier event for downtown Monroe, will bring the spirit of Spain and the Running of the Bulls to participants and spectators alike on May 4th – but with a jovial twist. Roller derby girls donning bullhorns and armed with whiffle-ball bats will skate on the heels of those willing to run, crawl or walk to the one-mile finish-line.
While the winner gets a trophy, the real draw for many will be the laughs and stories along the route as the roller girls “attack” runners with their bats. This thrilling fun-run event will benefit the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum and Monroe’s own Roe City Rollers roller derby team.
Participation begins at only $5.00. At the $5.00 level, participants receive the screen-printed scarf worn during the race. A participant at the $15.00 level receives the scarf and an event t-shirt designed by artist Jason Byron Nelson. Children 10 years old and under are free and must use the sidewalk.
Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. in front of Flying Tiger Brewery located at 506 N. 2nd Street in Monroe. The race begins at 12 p.m.
