May 17 2007.

October 20th/21st 2007 marks the silver anniversary of the Weston Beach Race, with promoters RHL Activities Ltd planning to make this year's event a celebration of 'The 25 years of Weston', by inviting back as many winners, organisers, and personalities as possible.

One of the main elements of the beach race has always been the number of competitors riding to raise money for charity - and this year RHL want to celebrate this by highlighting the riders and their charities with a specific mention in the souvenir programme and on the event website. So if you are riding for charity make sure you fill in the relevant section on the entry form. As promoters, RHL will also be doing their bit by holding a charity dinner at the Winter Gardens on Saturday night with all proceeds going to selected worthy causes.

The event website at www.wbruk.com  has been revamped to become a one stop shop for fans and riders alike. There are discounts of over 30% for fans who want to buy their tickets in advance - with special 'weekend' tickets that are only available online. And if you are planning on camping you will be able to book for the campsite here as well. Riders have been catered for on the website too - with a new online entry system. The regs and licence application can be downloaded, and entry forms can be completed and sent direct from the site including payment.

To broaden the reach and obtain as much history of the event as possible there is also an area of the website where you can upload any anecdotes or images from the beach race and share your experiences with the world !

As part of a season long campaign RHL are in the process of taking on the Tropicana shop concession on Weston sea front, where tourists and visitors will be able to find out all about the beach race and provide a local point of contact for enquiries.

Director of RHL Activities, Gareth Hockey is in high spirits, "I'm really looking forward to this year's race. It's a terrific achievement for an event to reach such a milestone and it is a testament to all the people who have put so much effort in over the 25 years to make it happen. Especially the guys who started it all off in 1982. I know that we are doing our best to put together an event that is worthy of this special anniversary and I hope that anyone who has enjoyed being part of the Weston Beach race will join us 'on the beach'!"
