SYDNEY (AP) - Four Australian women have nabbed the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels.

The quartet from the Australian capital of Canberra completed a 300-foot (100-meter) course near Sydney’s Opera House in about one minute and four seconds on Tuesday _ while wearing 3-inch (7.5 centimeter) stilettos.

A record keeper from Guinness World Records confirmed the women had set the record and presented them with a certificate.

The women _ known as the Pinkettes _ say they plan to use their 10,000 Australian dollar ($9,600) prize for a trip to Thailand.

About 100 women _ and one man _ competed in the race, which helped raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
