On Wednesday 23rd May the 5th anual running in heels competition took place in Freedom Square, Brno. Several heats were ran around a 100 m track in the square to the delight of the large crowd which had gathered for the event. 


There were one or two fallers during the race but non seemed serious. I for one didn’t see any “broken heels”, however joking aside one girl was taken to hospital for treatment by an ambulance which was stationed at the event.
