Beat the Street Stockton-on-Tees and Beat the Street Redcar & Cleveland conclude

 

The two Beat the Street games taking place across the North East have come to an end!

In Stockton-on-Tees, more than 19,500 people took part and clocked up 197,477 miles; in the Beat the Street Redcar and Cleveland game, more than 16,000 people walked, cycled and rolled 140,775 miles.

Among the participants was seven-year-old Joshua (pictured) who visited each and every one of the 170 Beat Boxes in the Stockton-on-Tees game on his bike having only learned how to cycle in August last year!

He said: “Mrs Shepherd, my schoolteacher told me about Beat the Street. I wanted to do Beat the Street to get loads of points for my school. I wanted to get them all as I love a challenge. My sister Ellie who is five helped sometimes when we walked. When I went on my bike I went with mammy. I am enjoying going on an adventure. I enjoyed riding down past the river and cycling past A&E. I am so proud of how far I have travelled on my bike. My next challenge is climbing Roseberry Topping again. I hope mammy is up for the challenge.”

Beat the Street is run by Redcar and Cleveland Council, funded by Sport England, and managed by Intelligent Health.

Beat the Street Stockton-on-Tees has been commissioned by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council with support from the National Lottery via Sport England. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health.
