Jointly organized by the Ipoh City Council (MBI), Perak Tourism Association (PTA), Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH), Perak Chapter and the International Waiters’ Race Agency, Ipoh is hosting its FIRST International Waiters’ Race in D.R. Seenivasagam Park on 29 June 2013.
Over more than one hundred waiters and waitresses from Perak’s eateries will be running the 1½ kilometer course through the park in three different races.
Also taking part from Ipoh’s sister city in Japan, Fukuoka and Ipoh’s “friendship cities” – Medan, Pusan, Hangzhou and Guangzhou.
Each runner will attempt to gain their fastest time while balancing their tray on one hand, without spilling any items. Running alone is worthless; winners have to arrive with a full tray or close to it.
The Waiters’ Race also included hotel students as well as professionals. Both races are open to men and women, prizes to be given separately to the best gentleman and best lady.
