The small town of Sigatoka is gearing up for the annual Coral Coast Bilibili race.

This two-day event, which starts on Friday (October 10), marks Fiji Day celebrations with a big splash where tourists and the locals get a chance to mingle and enjoy water sports on the banks of the Sigatoka River.

With new sponsors Vodafone on board, the event is expected to be bigger and better than ever.

The annual Coral Coast Bilibili race is also an opportunity for hotel employees in Fiji to enjoy the lone day to have a day off from their busy daily schedules of serving tourists.

Event coordinator Unaisi Murray confirmed that a 20-kilometre relay would kick-start the one-day sports carnival.

“Each team will consist of 10 runners - three females and seven males from the Hideaway Resort to Sigatoka Town,” Murray added.

“There’s a lot of positive response towards this event and we’re all looking forward to the big day.”

The event was started by Bob Kennedy, a former general manager of the Reef Resort - now called the Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji.

Apart from sporting activities, the Bilibili race offers tourists a chance to see local handicraft at the various stalls and groove to music and other entertainment items provided by various resorts in the Coral Coast.

The 2008 Bilibili Races will be hosted by the Warwick Fiji Resort. The one-day water sporting event will kick start at 8am tomorrow.fij
