Thousands of people lined up along 17th Street NW to watch racers in costumes and heels sprint for the finish line during last night’s 17th Street High Heel Race.

Television news crews, Dupont Circle business owners and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Councilmember Jack Evans were also in attendance to see the super-sized spectacle.

So, who won? According to the race results, Tasha Salad won the day by sprinting across the finish line in 41 seconds. But Esmerelda and Urtethra Franklin were close behind — both racers finished just one second later.
