Beat the Street is coming to Dorset!
Posted: Wed, 03 Oct 2018 09:00
Weymouth, Portland, Purbeck and Poole will be transformed into a giant game from 3 October to 14 November this Autumn as thousands of residents compete to see if their school, community or business can walk, run or cycle the furthest.
Beat the Street is a free, fun challenge where people are rewarded with points and prizes for exploring their area on foot or bicycle.
Dozens of special sensors called 'Beat Boxes' will appear across the area. Players tap the Beat Boxes with cards and fobs to track their journey and earn points for themselves and their team – the more Beat Boxes people swipe the more points they earn.
Schools and community groups across the area will be competing against each other to see if they can travel the furthest, climb the leaderboards and win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes. Families are encouraged to play for their local school while the wider community can create their own teams by visiting https://beatthestreet.me/dorset.
Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health and is funded by The National Lottery through Sport England and Public Health Dorset.
Active Dorset have a team for each area, feel free to join our team and help us Beat the Street!
