The Beat the Street physical activity game is coming to Northampton!
Beat the Street Northampton game will take place from 22nd September to 3rd November and is open to anyone of any age or ability who would like to take part. Children use a fob which will be provided via participating primary schools, and adults can pick up a free card from one of the distribution points listed on the Beat the Street Northampton website.
Beat the Street Northampton is brought to you by West Northamptonshire Council, Public Health Northamptonshire and Active Northants with funding from the National Lottery via Sport England. It is delivered by Intelligent Health.
Councillor Adam Brown, Deputy Leader of West Northants Council and Portfolio Holder for Housing, Culture & Leisure, said: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing Beat the Street to Northampton. We know that one of the best things that people can do for their physical and mental health is to move more and to get out into green space, and Beat the Street is designed to help people do exactly that in a safe way.
“It’s free to take part in Beat the Street and it’s open to everyone regardless of age, ability or background. It’s a game that encourages you to exercise from your front door and to clock up the miles within the game framework.”
