The adrenaline-hungry adventurers who run with the bulls are called?

Correct! Wrong!

Mozos, are the adrenaline-hungry adventurers who run with the bulls. They traditionally wear white pants and shirts, accessorized with a red bandana around the neck or waist. One legend says the look is meant to honor San Fermin, as the white symbolizes sainthood and the red the fact that he was martyred. Others say the mozos are meant to be dressed like the butchers who originated the tradition.

Do Bulls (Toro) get angry when they see the colour RED?

Correct! Wrong!

The Myth of the Color Red: is a common mistake to believe that Spanish matadors and mozos don the color red in order to anger the bulls. In fact, according to The Discovery Channel, the color is not what drives bulls to attack because "bulls don't seem to have any color preference at all." Either way, the bulls are colorblind, so they don't care.

Why did the tradition of the Bull run start in the first place?

Correct! Wrong!

The bull run started because it served as a way to transport the bulls from Pamplona's corral to its bullfighting ring where public spectacles were to be held throughout the fighting season.
