Puerto de la Cruz High Heels Obstacle Race

While I’m sure my friends on the spot in Puerto de la Cruz will be going along to this event on Friday, I just couldn’t help comment on it ... It’s clear to see why this would be one of the *unique highlights* of Puerto’s carnival and certainly lots of fun. This year is the 17th edition of the Mascarita Ponte el Tacón and, also this year has a new course. And it’s no short course either. Along that route too, are sections with multiple steps and slopes and loads of cobble stones. It’s bad enough in flat shoes!

The race is open to anyone (generally male), provided they can pass the test at inscription, which requires that their platform or heel measure more than 15 centimetres. In old money, that’s 5.9 inches, coincidentally (or maybe not) exactly the same length as the average adult erect penis, according to a study conducted by LifeStyles Condoms.

So, you have a bunch of blokes (with or without average appendages), wearing the equivalent of pole dancer shoes, hobbling around an obstacle course, in fancy dress and almost certainly aided (or hindered) by copious amounts of alcohol.

Why on earth would you want to miss that?

Friday, March 11th. Starts at 10 p.m. in the Plaza del Charco.

Please use this information as a guide, however, we accept no responsibility whatsoever for changes to events as these are beyond our control.
