What is Beat the Street?

Beat the Street turns towns into giant games. Earn points, win prizes and discover more about your area by walking, running and cycling. All the participants need to do is pick up a Beat the Street card and swipe Beat Boxes across the community within Stockton on Tees.

The Beat the Street game takes place over a 6-week period across the entire Borough. Using game cards, adults and children tap card readers placed on street furniture to get points for journeys. The game is displayed on a website where leader boards contain school, workplace and community teams all on a journey together. There are spot prizes up for grabs and hundreds of pounds worth of vouchers to be won.
