TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - In a story Feb. 5 about plans to host a Pamplona-style bull run in Southern California, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the city of Temecula announced it would host the event. The run is planned for the equestrian center at the Temecula Downs Event Center, which is in an unincorporated area east of the city in Riverside County. Temecula is not sponsoring the event.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Pamplona-style bull run set for S. California

Southern California to host Pamplona-style bull run in June

TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California equestrian center has announced plans to host a Pamplona-style bull run, months after a neighboring town nixed the event because of safety concerns.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1ewOfJ9 ) that the Golden State edition of the Great Bull Run will be held on June 21 at the Galway Downs center. It’s part of the Temecula Downs Event Center in unincorporated Riverside County.

The event organizers held two bull runs last year in Virginia and Georgia.

The spectacles mirror the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, where people run in front of a herd of toros let loose in the streets. Organizers say they toned down the U.S. versions by creating escape routes for runners and blunting the animal’s horn tips.

In November officials spiked a planned bull run in the Riverside County town of Lake Elsinore.
