Stiletto Sprint scheduled for October 5

The Junior League of Champaign-Urbana will host its second Stiletto Sprint on Saturday, October 5 in Downtown Champaign. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this event…it’s exactly what it sounds like. (Why is there not a RuPaul emoticon? There should be one.)

Check-in for interested participants begins at 4:30 p.m. There will be three races: one for the ladies at 5:30 p.m., one for men at 6:00 p.m., and one for teams at 5:45 p.m. All participants must wear at least 2-inch heels.

The races will be held on Walnut Street between Main and Chester. Advance registration is available here. Advance registration fees are $15 for individual runners and $55 for teams (of no more than 4 participants).

Prizes will be awarded to the race winners as well as for “Best Shoes” and “Most Dangerous Shoes.”
