GETWALKING

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Through­out March, in­di­vid­u­als and teams across the coun­try will vir­tu­ally walk around New Zealand. More than 2200 peo­ple have signed up for the Auck­land Walk Chal­lenge to com­pete against each other. The chal­lenge aims to en­cour­age Auck­lan­ders to leave their car at home and use their feet for shorter jour­neys. Auck­land Trans­port walk­ing and cy­cling safety man­ager Kathryn King said two thirds of ve­hi­cle trips made in the city were less than three kilo­me­tres. She en­cour­ages peo­ple to walk at least one of those jour­neys in an aim to re­duce the num­ber of cars on the road. Visit auck­land.walk­er­tracker.com to sign up.
