1st Pink Waiter Marathon

On 1 June, we'll be kicking off the summer with a splash of pink at the Vilnius Pink Soup Fest! And the streets of the Old Town of the capital will be painted pink at 06:00 p.m. for the 1st Pink Waiter Marathon.

During the event, waiters from all countries are invited to take part in a unique challenge - a 600 metre run, carrying a bowl full of pink soup on a tray. The challenge is to reach the finish line as quickly as possible, with as much soup as possible. Don't forget, a spectacular pink suit is a must-have! 

Paint Vilnius in the brightest colour of the summer season and win valuable prizes! 
REGISTRATION for the marathon is open until 30 May.
