Final push is on in popular Beat the Street game

The final rush for points has started as Beat the Street, the giant game taking place across Hammersmith and Fulham, draws to a close.

The game’s ‘Go Celebrate’ themed-week, where players encouraged to make one final push with bonus points, is taking place until later today.

For the final week, every Beat Box in the game will be giving out double points before the game ends at 7pm this evening. The leaderboard will then be taken down and the winners announced shortly after the competition.

More than 13,000 people have signed up and have together walked, cycled, wheeled, run and scooted an incredible 87,114 miles so far in the competition.

At present, Larmenier and Sacred Heart is in first place on the total points leaderboard, with Fulham Bilingual School and St Augustine’s in second and third place.

Councillor Alex Sanderson, cabinet member for children and education in the borough, said: “We’re already into ‘Go Celebrate Week’, the finale of Beat the Street.

“The game really has created a buzz and it has been fantastic to see everyone getting active as a community. The past six weeks have been great fun – now we must work with local stakeholders and community groups to ensure that we continue to move every day and to make physical activity travel the norm.”

Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health in partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham council. It is funded by the local authority and the National Lottery via Sport England.

The winners will be announced at www.beatthestreet.me/hf and on social media at @BeattheStreetHF

Beat the Street was created by GP Dr William Bird – a specialist in physical activity, to encourage people to explore their local areas and to make exercise fun.

It has previously been played by more than 1.8m people in 168 locations in the UK and beyond.

Beat the Street encourages communities to move more and to make small lifestyle changes, such as walking or cycling to school or work every day.
