'Extra' Raw: Regis and Kelly's High Heel-A-Thon

Talk show hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa brought back their entertaining athletic race, the High Heel-a-thon, on Wednesday.

The race is definitely one of a kind -- women and men sprint a 150-yard dash through Central Park in New York City while wearing stilettos! Kelly competed while Regis cheered her on and "Project Runway" host Tim Gunn stopped by to show his support.

Proceeds from the High Heel-a-thon benefit The Heart Truth campaign which raises heart disease awareness and promotes better health for women.

Top winners were awarded some great prizes, including a brand new 2011 Volkswagen Jetta for the first place finisher, and $5,000 and $2,500 for the second and third place winners respectively.
