On June 19, Glamour Magazine challenged 100 German women to a race on high heels and win 10,000 euros.
Held in west Berlin, Germany, Glamour Stiletto Run 2009 had 100 women compete in a 100 meters race on stilettos. There were only two rules, the heels had to be at least 7 cm long and at most 1.5 cm wide.
The winning time of 14.7 seconds was obtained by local girl Denise Hanitzsch, who was the runner up in last year’s race, because one of her stilettos broke. Denise confessed she didn’t train for the race, because she didn’t have to. She works in an office but is forced to run on high heels daily.
Asked was she was going to spend the 10,000 euros, the winner answered “On shoes! What else?”.
