Runners Take to High Heels in Croatia to Raise Breast Cancer Awareness

ZAGREB Runners took to the streets of Zagreb on Saturday in high heels for a race aimed at raising awareness of breast cancer.

Under a blue sky, about 40 women between the ages of 18-44 competed in the event in the Croatian capital.

Participants took to a 50-meter-long course in the central Ban Jelacic Square at great speeds despite wearing high-heeled shoes no shorter than eight centimeters (3 inches) and less than two cm in width.

The event drew the attention of passersby by as well as curious glances from those attending a nearby food festival.

There were three winners on Saturday and only one runner fell during the competition, though she was not badly injured and did not need medical assistance.

The winner takes home a prize of 10,000 kunas (1,300 euros), half of which is donated to organizations fighting against breast cancer.
