Beat the Street Renfrewshire takes place from 15th September to 27th October

A popular physical activity game that has taken Scotland by storm will be taking place across Renfrewshire this autumn in the areas of Bridge of Weir, Elderslie, Houston, Howwood, Kilbarchan, Linwood, Johnstone and Lochwinnoch.

The game takes place from Wednesday 15 September to Wednesday 27 October and as well as being in with a chance of winning prizes, Beat the Street participants can also help one of the Provost’s chosen charities, MND Scotland, earn a cash donation of up to £500 based on the total number of miles travelled.

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: “Beat the Street is a fantastic initiative to get children, families and our communities active. We are incredibly excited to bring it to Renfrewshire and we can’t wait to see how far everyone can walk, run, cycle, and scoot during the challenge.

“We hope that as many local residents as possible will take part earning points and prizes for themselves, their teams and MND Scotland while getting active and spending time outdoors.

“The game is designed to encourage active travel wherever possible so get the steps in, get in the saddle or any other method that means leaving the car at home.

“Anyone living, working or studying in the area can get involved – it’s completely free to play and is an excellent opportunity to go outdoors, spend time with your friends and family and get moving.”

Beat the Street Renfrewshire has been commissioned by Renfrewshire Council in partnership with Renfrewshire Leisure and is funded by the Scottish Government’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places programme, administered by Paths for All. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health.
