At 7.50 in the morning people are already waiting excitedly for the bulls. The first stretch runs form the area of the bullpens to the edge of the pinewoods, from where the horsemen will then drive the bulls to the bullring. After crossing the pine grove, the horsemen walk the bulls to a resting place, where they can take a pause.
Now comes the most complicated stretch where the mountains finish and the road begins. By this time it is about 9.30, and the urban circuit begins. The bulls are driven through the streets of Cuéllar until they arrive at Los Paseos, where the bullring is placed.
The run can take up to an hour and a half.
While the men are herding the bulls around the countryside, the
people of the town wait impatiently for them to enter the city.
To pass the time, they dance the traditional dance and sing a
song called "¡A por ellos!" (After them!) that
is known as the hymn of the town. Even more so, if possible, at
the end of the festivities on Saturday at 7.00 in the afternoon,
when the final announcements are given to an overflowing Plaza
Mayor, and the town ends the festival by bursting into song when
the announcer shouts "after them!". This is when the
partying really begins.
