Annual Stiletto Run Teeters into Delray Beach Nov. 16

This event is luring me, tempting me, drawing me like a moth to a flame.

After all, it combines three of my favorite things: Delray Beach, stiletto shoes, and an offbeat event. I want go so badly I can taste it.

The First Annual Stiletto Run, presented by Vince Canning Shoes, teeters into downtown Delray Beach 5 – 8 p.m., Nov. 16, 2012. You don a pair of heels – and there are requirements and restrictions, such as a minimum heel height of three inches, no wedges, no taping the shoes to your feet and so on – and then race other similarly clad contestants over a course of 75 meters.

Runners who sprint the fastest in the highest heels or create the most fabulous pair of stilettos will win prizes, and the first place finisher will snag a two-night stay at the new Hyatt Place in Delray Beach, valued at a cool $700.

The crazy categories include:

  • Men’s 75 Meter Dash – Men donning stilettos vie for balance and best time
  • Stiletto Strut – Prize awarded to the best strut, swag or sashay
  • Team Relay – Teams of four race a 4-leg relay

Sneak a peek at the video. It's sure to 'pump' you up!
