Everything you need to know about the Sanfermines

About this information

For the preparation of this report, DatosRTVE has used different sources, including the database of the duration of confinements from 1980 to 2019 of the website www.sanfermin.com, of the firm Kukuxumuxu, to calculate which herds are faster and the average duration per year in that period since the running of the bulls is televised.

Its statistics calculate the duration of each running of the bulls, not from the launch of the rocket that marks its beginning, but from the moment the first bull or halter appears through the door of the Corrales de Santo Domingo, which can happen a few seconds later. In the same way they stop the chronometer when the last animal has entered the bullring.

According to this database, since 1980 there have been 319 bull runs – the one on July 13, 1997 was suspended – with an average duration of 2 minutes and 18 seconds. However, for the global average duration of the running of the bulls, DatosRTVE has used the data provided by the Pamplona City Council (3 minutes 55 seconds) that take into account not only the races of the last four decades. The fastest confinement data is also from the Consistory, and the fastest, from the Efe agency.

Other data on the running of the bulls, such as the characteristics of the route (meters, sections, average speed of the bulls, deaths, etc…) have also been compiled from the website www.sanferminesplamplona.es launched a few years ago by the Consistory. The City Council has also provided DatosRTVE with the rider profile data -based on a survey carried out during the 2019 sanfermines-; the balances of the 2018 and 2019 parties, from which figures have been extracted such as the number of participants in the running of the bulls and the number of complaints filed (including sexual assaults and abuses); and the breakdown of the budget for sanfermines 2022.

For the tourism block, the figures managed by the Navarra Tourism Observatory have been used, especially those contained in two reports: Measurement of the tourist influx in San Fermín through mobile telephony devices (2018) and the General Report of San Fermín 2018 party data. In the latter, the evolution of hotel prices and hotel billing is collected. The data on the average price of a hotel room in 2019 has been updated by the Pamplona Hotel Association; the estimate for the prices of this 2022 are from the Efe agency.

The balcony rental price has been consulted by DatosRTVE on several pages of tourist companies that offer this service and that can be consulted through the City Council website that links to several of them.
