Beat the Street, a new, exciting community- based initiative is on its way to Torbay.
A fun, free and inclusive walking and cycling competition, its aims are to help get us more active, improving our health and connecting our communities.
It’s being run by ‘Intelligent Health’ and is funded by The National Lottery (through Sport England) and Torbay Council Public Health.
And everyone can play!
Beat the Street will see Torquay, Paignton and Brixham transformed into ‘a giant game’ from 19 September-31 October 2018. People of all ages play simply by walking or cycling around the area, discovering new places in, earning points and winning prizes.
You can play on your own or join a team, every journey you make will add points to your total, and the simple materials required will soon be available from local ‘Distribution Points’, including libraries, leisure centres and supermarkets.
The game already has a great track record across the UK and a Torbay launch event will be happening very soon. In the meantime the Beat the Street Torbay website can tell you much more, including how to get involved, at: https://beatthestreet.me/torbay
