Third annual Amazing High Heel Race to step off June 15 in Hillcrest

SAN DIEGO -- Girl, break in those heels! The Amazing High Heel Race is coming back into Hillcrest for it's third annual appearance on Saturday, June 15.

High-heel clad individuals will race through Hillcrest during the scavenger-hunt type event to raise funds for the continued maintenance of the Hillcrest Pride Flag.

During the race, teams will complete a numbers of "tasks" - which will be "mostly" PG-13 rated - that will take them on a journey throughout the neighborhood. At the conclusion of the race, participants will gather at Gossip Grill for an awards celebration and party.

The event was first held in 2011 and was the first fundraiser for the Hillcrest Pride Flag, which was installed last summer. The flag has continued maintenance needs, and the Hillcrest Business Association, which maintains the flag pole site, has plans to build an LGBT historical monument at the pole's base - plans that will be unveiled today.

Organizers call the event a "celebration of diversity, an exercise in unity, and a total investment in enhancing the quality of life in San Diego's most vibrant neighborhood."
