At the annual event, brought back into existence in 2011 on the 125th anniversary of the Kurfuerstendamm (known locally as the Ku'damm), a main shopping thoroughfare, waiters, porters, cooks and bartenders run a 400-meter track while performing their regular occupational duties. The event was reinstated after a hiatus since the 1950s, when it was created to bring a sense of normal life back to Berlin after World War II under the Allies, a period in which gastronomical interest in the isolated Western part of the city suffered.
