Authentic Asian Experiences: Bull Race In Madura Island, Indonesia
By Jason Tedjasukmana If you like the idea of running with the bulls in Pamplona, but risking a horn in your spleen puts you off, consider a visit to Indonesia's Madura Island. The Karapan Sapi, or bull race, is an annual tradition on this small island off Java, attracting thousands of visitors in search of local music, food and, of course, speed. Though not exactly Kentucky Downs, the races whip up plenty of excitement as contestants and their bulls bolt the 100-meter track in seconds. The races are held throughout September in the island's four districts, with the final sprint for the President's Cup held every October. Madura is more accessible than ever following the recent completion of the Suramadu Bridge across the Madura Straits, reducing the travel time by car from the major city of Surabaya to just a few hours. Cowboy boots are welcome, but early fall is Indonesia's rainy season, so make sure they're rubber. Source: Time Magazine
