The things people do for money.

Madrid Gay Pride is host to a slew of events, but one of the more original is the annual men's high heel race which holds a grand price of €500 for the man who manages to sprint the fastest in 10cm or higher heels.

Dozens of men ran down the cobbled streets in order to nab top prize and the glory of the title. If there was ever an international tour, we think the best place for the Irish leg would be Temple Bar at 11pm on a Saturday night. The casualties would be many, but the scenes would be phenomenal.
