MADRID—Fighting bulls caught at least two runners between their horns and threw them to the ground in a lightning fast fourth run of Spain's famed San Fermin festival.

Navarra Hospital chief Javier Sesma said three people were injured but no one was gored in the crazed, two-minute dash Wednesday in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona.

National television replays showed two separate runners being caught between the horns of bulls and being flung to the ground, narrowly escaping being gored.

Thousands of thrill-seekers race daily with the bulls along a 930-yard (850-meter) route from a holding pen to the city bull ring.

The runs are the highlight of the nine-day street partying festival made world famous with the 1926 publication of Ernest Hemingway's novel "The Sun Also Rises.
