Glamour Stiletto Run


You've been training for
this race your entire
life but never realized it.


It's next Thursday, March 9
at 5 p.m. on PC Hooft Street
in Amsterdam.

The race is a promotion for
Glamour's first spring fashion
issue in The Netherlands.


You sprint 70 meters in stilettos
at least 7 cm (2.75") tall.

The winner gets €10,000
($12,000; £6,860).


Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana
are just across the street
from the finish line.

For those who simply can't get
enough of the stiletto lifestyle™,
there's more here.

I am the co-author of Climbing Mountains in Stilettos: Not Your Average Trail Guide to Life. It's a sassy, self-help guide for fun, fashionable women. When the book came out last year, I told readers: our title is a metaphor not a fashion tip. Well, I guess I was wrong. I'd love to see a stilettos run on a mountain trail next time!

Wow! that should be cool! I think I would do pretty good in that one since I often have to run in my heels to the train, make the light to cross the street, etc.. When I do it, I wonder how bad that is for my knees since I have to wear orthodics when I do my long distance runs--of course, wearing running shoes--. I wonder how many girls will ruin their heels doing this... hope they are not wearing their Manolo Blahnik's or Christian Louboutin's... I wonder how many boys will run it... If somebody sees a video of it, please post the link... thanks
