Chairman Max Thom- son says the proposal targets those who hardly use public transport and is an incentive for residents to hop on. Using Auckland's inner-city buses is free with an AT HOP card so should be stretched to the suburbs, Mr Thom- son says. Mini-buses would operate within the zones as regular-sized buses would not be able to manoeuvre around some residential streets such as the no exit Park Rise in Campbells Bay, he adds. He presented the idea, on behalf of the associ- ation, to the Auckland Council transport com- mittee's last hearing in Takapuna as feedback on the Draft Regional Pub- lic Transport Plan. Councillor Mike Lee says mini-buses have been mooted before but the suggestion would be taken into consideration. Copies of the plan are at public libraries or at aucklandtransport.govt. nz. Just keep going -- advice from Ironman By LAUREN PRIESTLEY Trade secrets: Ironman champion Terenzo Bozzone offers training tips to Ports of Auckland staff Jesse-Lee Thomson-Cowley and Matt Ball ahead of next month's giant fun run along the waterfront. Photo: LAUREN PRIESTLEY Make the most of it, be on time and don't give up. These are among the top training tips professional triathlete Terenzo Bozzone is sharing with Ports of Auck- land staff preparing for the region's biggest fun run. The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays event will be held on March 10 and Mr Bozzone has lots of advice. He says the event is one of the first races he ever participated in. The whole thing was over before it began,'' the New Zealand Ironman representative says. It's really important to get out there and enjoy it, basically. Don't let the whole race pass you by without thinking about it.'' Mr Bozzone, who has 19 Half- Ironman wins under his belt, focuses on core strength in his training and spends a lot of time running up hills. He tries to maintain an even pace but says it is sometimes best for newcomers to start out slow. Even someone with his experience hits lows but it all comes down to attitude, he says. It's a bit like climbing Mt Everest in a way, one step at a time. The last kilometre in any race feels like you're pulling one of those 40-foot containers behind you . . . don't give up and just keep moving forward.'' Another tip for runners is to be well prepared, he says. Arrive at the start on time, wear proper running gear and pick a spot in the pack based on your ability and speed. Ports of Auckland has sponsored the event since 2010. The company also sponsored the Ironman 70.3 event in Auckland in January. Spokesman Matt Ball says it sup- ports waterfront events to encourage healthy attitudes and activities among its staff. A large proportion of our workers are doing shift work. With that type of work you really have to look after yourself.'' The company encourages all staff members to do the fun run. It will be Mr Ball's first time com- peting in the event and he is taking his whole family along. He says Ports of Auckland supports events that encourage visitors and residents to enjoy Auckland's Waite- mata harbour. We're here on the waterfront so it's fitting. We want to promote activities that will bring the waterfront to life.'' Ports of Auckland Round the Bays is co-owned by the Auckland Joggers Club and Fairfax Media, owner of the North Shore Times. Registration fees will be donated to charities including YMCA Camp Adair, Auckland Cystic Fibrosis, Choice Foundation Stand Tall Programme, Variety -- The Children's Charity, Make-A-Wish NZ and Fairfax First Books.
