PAMPLONA, Spain (Reuters) - Five people were treated for minor injuries but there were no gorings at the sixth San Fermin bull run this year in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona on Tuesday.

Animals weighing around 650 kilos (1,433 pounds) race after runners from around the world, many wearing a white shirt and red scarf, through the narrow streets of Pamplona each morning during the nine-day summer festival.

The run on Tuesday featured specially-bred bulls from the Victoriano de Rio ranch and the 875-metre dash from pen to Pamplona bull ring lasted just 2 minutes 13 seconds, the fastest so far this year.
