The 10,000 Steps Northland win of a Golden Foot Award got a good story in the Northland Advocate
A Northland fitness programme not only stepped up to the mark, it set the pace at the inaugural national Golden Foot New Zealand National Walking Awards.
The 10,000 Steps Northland programme has won the Living Streets Aotearoa award for the country's best recreational walking programme.
Well done Sport Northland on some well deserved coverage!
Tuesday lunchtime walks 2020 start at Plimmer statue (the man with his dog) at the base of Plimmer Steps on Lambton Quay every Tuesday at 12.30pm from February to the end of November.
The walks are graded to indicate whether the walk is along the flat or whether climbing steps is involved. Details of the walks are here.
The walks are designed to last less than 1 hour so that those who work in the city can get back to work on time.
On 3rd June , Hon. Tariana Turia, Associate Minister for Health joined Living Streets Wellington members for a lunchtime walk, and helped to launch the new pocket maps range.
