Round the Bays turn out 70k

 NZ Herald

More people turned out for a charity fun run that could be bothered supporting greedy, racist, bully, unionists. The huge irony is that the even is sponsored by Ports of Auckland

New Zealand’s largest fun run, the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays, attracted an estimated 70,000 walkers, runners and wheelchair athletes today as they made their way along the 8.4km route from Quay Street to St Heliers Bay.

First to cross the finish line in 28 minutes and 4 seconds was Jono Jackson from Auckland City Athletics Club.

Second was Tony Payne in 28 minutes and 16 seconds.

The first woman across the finish line, Lisa Robertson, a first-timer in the Round the Bays and a member of Pakuranga Athletics Club, was nearly five minutes ahead of her closest rival, clocking in at 29 minutes and 19 seconds, followed by Nikki Hill at 34 minutes and 14 seconds.

Now that really is showing where Auckland’s hearts and minds are at.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
