nyshoespyI just stumbled across this, it’s not a New York event, it’s actually to benefit the MUSC Children’s Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, but it’s such a great idea, I had to post it. It’s called the Stiletto Stampede.

The Stampede is a 100 yard dash but all participants must wear heels at least 3 inches tall (and they have to still be attached to your feet by the end of the race). And the winner gets a $10,000 prize!! It’s composed of $5,000 cash, a $5,000 gift certificate to Gwynn’s, a designer department store, and a year of free pedicures from Stella Nova. Wow. Start training, the run is March 21st! There is also a $1,000 prize for best costume presented by Charleston Magazine (I hope they post the winner’s picture online).

I hope someone decides to set something like this up in New York, I bet it would be huge. I think we’d have to make the minimum heel height at least 4 inches for New Yorkers though, since you know some of these girls live in their 3 inch heels  😉
