High Heel Race in St. Petersburg

While everyone else in the sporting world is focusing their attention on perhaps the most famous race on this planet, the Tour de France, others in the Russian city of St. Petersburg are paying perhaps a little too much attention to a local race of their own.

If you were lucky enough to be in this fine city last week, you would have witnessed a rather bizarre sporting event in the center of town: a race in high heels.

The rules were simple: heels must not be less than 3.5 inches.

And that’s it.

As you can tell by the above photograph, the St. Petersburg High Heels Sprint has all the excitement and spills of the Tour de France, plus sex appeal!

I’m sure we can all look forward to this spectacle becoming an annual event. Be sure to book your tickets now for next year!
