    Background: France's annual July 14 Bastille Day celebrations began this year on June 26, with a "Waiters' Race" in Paris. An estimated 300 waiters and waitresses, wearing their uniforms and carrying serving trays, took park in the eight kilometre (5 mile) race, which began and finished at the capital's Hotel de Ville (City Hall). Thousands of spectators lined the competitors' route, which took the runners past many of Paris's most famous buildings and monuments, including the Opera House. The winner, tray in hand, took just 28 minutes to cover the course.
