well, there's an 800 meter race run by women in stilettos. the link has video, and a short blurb! i believe it's australian, and the prize is 2500 monetary pounds.
hmph, i'll be really excited if I find out how to make the numismatic-pounds sign in the next five minutes. (link to stiletto sprint found via neatorama.)
oh my god, will it work!? £ 2500.00, woo-yeah!
