Runners sprint in heels at Madrid Pride celebrations

In Madrid, a race took place during Pride Month celebrations in which participants, mostly men, had to wear high heels and pick up a dress and lipstick along the way.

The shoes had to be at least 4 inches high and were measured before the race.

The winner received 350 euros.

The race was one of the most anticipated events of the LGBT festival and drew competitors from other countries.

The Madrid Pride celebrations will culminate in a parade on Saturday.
