There are just two weeks to go until the end of Beat the Street in Isleworth and it is not too late to get your walking shoes on!
The popular competition has seen both young and old get active and have fun at the same time since it began in February, with a total of almost 45,000 miles walked so far.
Currently top of the leaderboard is St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Isleworth, with pupils and staff clocking up 12,510 miles so far as the event goes into the last fortnight, with the get active initiative ending on 13 April.
Beat the Street has seen residents and school children collect points for the number of miles they travel on foot or on the two wheels of a bicycle.
The points are collected by tapping a special card against special sensors called ‘Beat Boxes’ which have been fitted to lamp posts across Isleworth for the duration of the competition. The cards are available free to schoolchildren and can also be picked up at GP surgeries, leisure centres and libraries.
Beat the Street is free to take part in and anyone of any age can get involved. Individuals, schools, workplaces, community groups and families are encouraged to take part to improve their fitness and wellbeing. It is open to people of all ages and levels of fitness.
