Beat the Street Forth and Clyde is set to Go Wild

 

Beat the Street players in Bonnybridge, Camelon and Kilsyth are being invited to ‘Go Wild’ this week and to explore the area’s parks, green spaces and waterways with double points on selected Beat Boxes in these areas.

This week is the final week of the popular walking, cycling, running, scooting and wheeling game, and currently 2,099 people have signed up and together travelled 10,228 miles. Leading the way is Head of Muir Primary School who are at the top of the total and average points leaderboards.

However, there is still time for other teams to catch up, particularly as there are bonus points on certain Beat Boxes throughout Go Wild week. Not only that, but players who complete the health survey will get an additional 100 points for their team.

Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health on behalf of the Central Canals Development Project and is funded by the Kelvin Valley and Falkirk LEADER Programme and Paths for All’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places Open Fund.

The Green Action Trust, one of Scotland’s leading environmental regeneration charities, is coordinating the Central Canals Development Project. Andy Macpherson, the trust’s development officer for the project added: “Beat the Street is a great incentive to get active and the game also has shown that it’s so beneficial to get outdoors and into green spaces. We’d really like to see residents getting out there during Go Wild week and exploring all the beautiful open spaces on our doorsteps, including the chance to spend time by the water at our beautiful canal tow paths.

Val Caldwell, Beat the Street programme manager for Scotland added: “With just one week of the game left, we want to help everyone in Bonnybridge, Camelon and Kilsyth to improve their health and boost their immunity over the winter. Help us achieve that by telling us about your current activity levels. Everyone who completes our survey via the www.beatthestreet.me/forthandclyde will get an additional 100 points to say thank you.”
