Racing Strategy

The Survivor Stampede – the first race of the day. Heeled Survivors run, walk, hop or shimmy down the raceway as the crowd cheers you on!

The Stroller Stampede – Moms and Dads grab your heels and the little ones and scoot down the race path with the entire family in tow!

The Pooch Scooch – Pooch lovers, dress your furry friends and sashay down the runway as the crowd cheers you on! Best in show wins a prize!

The Stiletto Stampede – The original race heat will be broken up into race groups on site, and when the horn blows, you are off!

Spectator Tips

Bring your entourage! We encourage everyone to come out and support the Stiletto Stampede participants running 100 yards in heels for this great cause. Bring your signs, noisemakers and cheers and WEAR PINK to show your support as well! Stick around and shop/dine as many retailers and restaurants are participating as well by donating a portion of proceeds from the day.
