Two new Beat the Street games get started tomorrow (29th June) in Dudley and Shrewsbury!
Both games get underway for six weeks to coincide with the Commonwealth Games period, and are part of the celebration of the Games coming to the West Midlands.
Beat the Street is a free, interactive game that encourages people of all ages to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives by rewarding teams with points and prizes the further they walk, cycle and roll.
Beat the Street Shrewsbury received an official launch on Monday in the Square with short speeches from Cllr Kirstie Hurst-Knight, Chris Child, Chief Executive of Energize Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and the Beat the Street founder Dr William Bird MBE. Organisers also led a walk around the town centre to demonstrate how the game works.
Beat the Street Shrewsbury has been commissioned by Shropshire Council with support from the National Lottery via Sport England and Shrewsbury Big Town Plan. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health.
Beat the Street Dudley has been commissioned by Dudley Council and the Canal and River Trust with support from the National Lottery via Sport England. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health.
