Beat the Street is a walk in the park
Beat the Street players in Isleworth took advantage of a Get Active Hounslow-led walk recently at Isleworth Leisure Centre.
The walk was free and open to all and offered players the chance to collect bonus points as the route covered seven Beat Boxes along the way.
Marko Stefanovski, aged nine, from Hounslow, is an avid Beat the Street player and has been out walking whenever possible to score points for his team at Marlborough Primary School, Hounslow.
The youngster is one of several school children who are spending more time outdoors with their families and getting active while having fun with Beat the Street. Scores of residents are also discovering parts of Isleworth they haven’t known about before by getting out and about.
There were also many Beat the Street players among those taking part in the Get Active Hounslow sponsored 5km walk, on Sunday in aid of Sport Relief.
The route of the walk took in 11 Beat Boxes and those participating were invited to donate £1 to the Sports Relief charity.
So far, nearly 4,000 people of all ages and abilities are taking part in Beat the Street Hounslow and have collectively walked more than 18,000 miles.
Currently, the overall leaderboard is currently topped by Isleworth Town Primary School and the average points leaderboard is led by another Isleworth school, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
Councillor Ed Mayne, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Leisure, Hounslow Council, said: “Beat the Street is a great chance for people of all ages to get fit and active. It is also a good opportunity to explore the local community and have fun.”
