Important Note:

Because food runners are responsible carrying food to tables, they must have a moderate level of physical capability. The better shape you are in, the more it will help you when working as a food runner. Being a food runner can often be hectic and stressful, so it helps to be able to work well under pressure. Food runners often are on their feet for long periods of time, sometimes up to eight hours. There is a certain degree of squatting and moving around tight spaces so it helps to be nimble and flexible as well.
