Forget just walking in heelsrunning in heels is all the rage as high heel races of all styles and heights are happening all around the world. From the stylish celebrities at the Heel-A-Thon in New York to the dolled-up drag queens at the Dupont Circle High Heel Race in DC, everyone is sprinting in stilettos, and now you can test your tootsies too!

Saturday at 2PM, Mainstreet Martinsburg (MSM) will be hosting their first ever High Heel-A-Thon Race to benefit Relay for Life--this will be the final event of their week-long "Paint the Town Purple." Racers will convene at the corner of Burke & Queen and run the full block from Queen Street to College Street--heels must be at least 2 inches. Races will be done in heats and prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Registration will take place on Saturday from 10AM to 2PM at the MSM booth on the corner by the starting line. The entry fee is $25, and all proceeds will benefit Relay for Life.

 Here are some tips for sprinting in stilettos, should you be participating in Saturday's race or just trying to escape a bad wedding date.

Prepare yourself physically. It can be really difficult to walk in heels, much less run, if you are not physically fit for the task. Your ankles should be strong enough to support you or you could fall and lose your balance often. You should then make sure that you pay attention to your ankles and perform ankle-strengthening exercises to firm up your strut.

Do some stretching. Before wearing your high heels, make sure that you prepare your feet and legs by stretching them. This is similar to a warm-up or stretching exercise by athletes. Simply rotate and stretch your feet and ankles so your will build up your strength.

Be an expert in walking in heels first. Before you even attempt to run in high heels, you have to first practice walking in them. If you cannot perform it well by simply walking, how else will you fare while running in them?

Choose quality heels. Let's face it; it will be really difficult for you to run around in towering stilettos. Stilettos provide little stability so if you plan on having a busy and hectic day, try not to wear stilettos. Choose shoes with thicker heels instead. You can still find heels that look sexy without having to go all the way-stiletto.

Start slowly, and choose your path. Make sure that you when you run don't run as if you were wearing rubber shoes. Start out slowly, and test your balance first. Do not attempt to run in uneven surfaces like grass or rocky areas, as these could really trip you up and you will definitely lose your balance.
