Beat the Street
Beat the Street - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Together with our partners we have had to end our Beat the Street game.
Councillor Jill Mannion-Brunt, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “We have seen lots of people get more active thanks to Beat the Street, so we’re very sad to see this end, however, we must assist the government in ensuring people follow the latest guidance to stay at home to stop the coronavirus spreading.
“Even though Beat the Street is ending early, our partners and game operator, Intelligent Health would still love to know what you thought of the game. Please complete our survey www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DTPQGSJ and you could be in with a chance of winning prizes.”
Beat Boxes will no longer function, and the leader board has been frozen. Winners will be announced on social media and prizes will be sent out via email and post.
Beat the Street is a fun free initiative that will see Chesterfield transformed into a giant game from 26 February to 8 April 2020.
Walk, cycle, run or scoot around the borough and tap in at Beat Boxes that have been placed on lampposts around the area. This will then give you a point score which can be added to a team total.
You can set up your own team with 12 or more players, join a community team or play for one of the three nominated charities. Local schools have been encouraged to join in and set up teams, children in those schools are given a special fob and parents are issued with a card so the whole family can get involved in playing.
Points mean prizes. There are school, team and charity prizes available and watch out for individual spot prizes throughout the six weeks. The three schools that earn the most points will be given vouchers to spend on books or sports equipment.
The charities you can play for are Age Concern Chesterfield and District, Community Transformation for Cosy Hub and Fairplay.
Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health in partnership with Chesterfield Borough Council and is funded by the National Lottery on behalf of Sport England and Chesterfield Health and Wellbeing Partnership.
