The GLAMOR Stiletto Heel Race, which took place on July 7 on Moscow's Tsvetnoy Boulevard, gathered 150 participants. According to the conditions of the race, the girls had to run 50 meters in heels with a height of at least 9 cm, the shape of the heel, however, could be any - not only stilettos, but also columns, and cubes, and other geometric quirks, except for the platform.
There were 150 girls at the start, absolutely everyone ran to the finish line, reached and danced (some participants also chose this way of moving in space). A few falls without injuries - the participants ran along the flooring from a special rubber covering for running. And in the first races, they often fell, having already finished, because they could not slow down in front of a huge number of photographers.
The excitement was really great, as well as the speed - on smartphones, the image of the running people was blurred, and amateur photographers could not catch the winner in the frame - her image turned out to be cosmic-futuristic. As the male viewers said, they would not compete with some of the participants, not only in running in heels, but even in ordinary sneakers.
The British brand of youth shoes BETSY and the online store of clothing, shoes and accessories Lamoda.ru for the first time this year became official insurers of the stiletto race. You could get insurance shoes in three cases - if the heel height of the registered participant was less than 9 cm, if the heel broke before the start or during the race, and finally, if the participant came in without shoes. And such unforeseen cases also arose. Diana Skitova, theater and film actress, who in the 2009 year was the face of the clothing brand Maria Kravtsova, registered for the start in advance, but on Saturday was working, she came to the race immediately from the set, where there were no necessary shoes, and at the Lamoda.ru stand in the BETSY collection, she immediately picked up the right pair. By the way, Maria Kravtsova has already become the permanent leader of the race.
The winner of the July race was Marina Tuktamysheva, now a two-time winner in this "sport" - last year she won the stiletto heel race in Yekaterinburg, prepared for a whole year and decided to conquer the capital - and the capital surrendered. However, I was preparing - this is poorly said. Marina is a master of sports in track and field athletics, a champion of the Siberian Federal District and a finalist of the Russian Youth Championship. She runs 60 meters in 7,38 seconds.
She received a prize of 100 thousand rubles in the online store of clothing, shoes and accessories lamoda.ru. Daria Lavlinskaya and Maria Reznikova, who took the 2 and 3 places, received a shopping certificate at Lamoda.ru for 50 and 30 thousand rubles, respectively.
A special prize from Lamoda.ru and BETSY was established for the most stylish participant in the race, Nisso Muborakshoeva received it. Photos of the fastest and most stylish participants can be found in one of the next issues of GLAMOR magazine.
All guests were waited by treats, drinks, make-up, manicure, massage and many pleasant surprises.
