The 2nd Annual San Fermin de Tempe (Running of the Bulls Tempe) is downtown’s newest fall festival! In homage to Spain’s summer festival, with a New Orleans twist, we take over the streets of #DowntownTempe in a rush to avoid a new breed of beast, the Rollerbull!
Rollerbull? A lean mean local roller derby girl in costume; horns, face paint, and whatever else they choose, who is equipped with a plastic bat. Rollerbulls make RotB possible and keep you moving – don’t get caught!
Running? This is an adult fun run, at around 1.2k, so don’t worry! Take it easy and enjoy the chase. And though there are no prizes for placement, we do give out a few awards:
- Glutton for Punishment To the runner that was gored by the most bulls
- Scaredy Cat The fastest runner (You dont want this award)
- Horniest Bull The Rollerbull with the best horns
- Angriest Bull The meanest Rollerbull
- Sexiest Bull Self explanatory
10 AM – 2:00 PM Start at the registration table, organized by last name, and pick up your party package. Stick around for live music, demonstrations from the RollerBulls, and maybe a drink or two.
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Opening ceremonies followed by runners making their way to 7th St. where we will release the “bulls” and begin the run.
3:45 PM – 4:30 PM Closing ceremony in the Centerpoint courtyard, awards, and after party celebrations begin.
4:30 PM – 2:00 AM Party with the RollerBulls while enjoying live music and DJ entertainment.
MEET THE ROLLERBULLS!
