Beat the Street is a fun free real-life walking and cycling challenge. Beat the Street is an Essex County Council initiative with support from Tendring District Council and delivered by Intelligent Health.
Designed to get kids and communities moving
Beat the Street is designed to inspire people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to the shops, or to school or work every day, to improve their health. In 2015 more than 175,000 people took part.
How does it work?
‘Beat Boxes’ will be positioned throughout Tendring. Players receive a card which they tap on the Beat Boxes as they walk, cye, or scoot around town, earning points for themselves and their team. Players can view their progress online on liverpoolnorth.beatthestreet.me. There will be prizes for the top teams – at the end of the competition.
