Among the victims, two Aussies and two Americans along with four Spanish runners have fallen prey to the bull’s horns.
The festival’s final run, taking place today, saw one Spanish runner and two Aussies receive “non-life threatening injuries”, victims were gored in the thigh, armpit and arm.
One man was was flipped over on the horns of an escapee bull named Rabanero, before slamming him onto the cobblestones.
The bull wreaked havoc among runners as they skirted his huge horns – with The Red Cross reporting several other injuries from people tumbling and knocking into the ground as they rushed to dodge the huge beast.
Two more runners – who were trapped against a wall – were clipped by the bull’s mighty horns.

The festival runs for nine days, with one run each day.

Animal rights protesters have also become a fixture in Pamplona, the bulls who run in the morning are killed later that afternoon in bull fights.
The protesters describe the festival as “animal cruelty for the sake of human entertainment,” but bullfights are protected under the Spanish Constitution as part of the country’s cultural heritage.
