Austin's annual stiletto stampede is not a marathon by any stretch of the imagination, but it is not for the faint of the heart either. That's because the brave women and men that participate in the 100-yard sprint not only don pink hats, wigs and even fairy wings, but also, stilettos that sport a heel of at least 5-inches!

Now in its fourth year, the fun race was founded by a group of enterprising residents of the beautiful Texas city to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. This year's event which took place on October 20th, was a giant success with hundreds of women, men and even dogs all eager to kick up their heels, for a great cause!
