Waiters races have been run all around the world for over a century. It gives those in the profession a chance to demonstrate their professional skills including their agility and balance.
The earliest races started in France which were to recognise waiters for their contribution towards the tourism industry and economy as well as an opportunity to show off their skills to the public!
Now, these races are held around the world and this year in London the race of all races will be held on June 23rd, 2013.
