The race is named and run in honour of the late Bob Robson, who was a foundation member of the Williamstown RSL Club and the Williamstown Cycling Club.

Robson was a well known and popular figure in Williamstown until his death in 1959. He owned and operated the Seagull Cycles shop on Ferguson Street, which was popular among cyclists.

The Bob Robson Memorial has formed part of the RSL Club’s Anzac Day celebrations since 1960.

A who’s who of Australian champions have won the famous race, including the legendary Peter Besanko, Don Allan, David Allan and John Bylsma.

Race is proudly supported by the Robson Family, the Williamstown RSL, Hobsons Bay City Council and the Westgate Community Road Safety Council.
