Although this is a relatively short distance, it is impossible for a runner to cover the whole course. Several factors make it so; the distance, the presence of so many other runners and, above all, the enormous speed of the bulls. The whole length of the course is completely fenced in which makes it almost impossible for any bulls to escape from the course.
At the same time, the local police help move all personnel from these streets. Nobody may remain in the space between the two lines of fencing except health personnel and accredited press people. When the last wooden gate is closed in the fencing, the streets have now become a relatively narrow passageway without an exit or an entrance.
The only way for the runners to gain access to the course now is to make their way to a gateway located beside City Hall which is open from between 6. Spectators may also start looking for a position behind the fencing to watch the bullrunning event from there.
