The annual high heel race in Madrid, Spain, brought together a crowd to watch men run in heels towards the possible $500 dollars prize.

The race forms part of a week long gay pride celebration in Madrid's gay quarter.

According to the rules, the heels have to be at least 15 cm high and racers have to dash down a street in the first part of the race before dressing up in a wig and lipstick and then competing the second half of the race.
