Beat the Street is a fun, free game that gets the whole community moving, and its coming to Leicester on 26th May for 6 weeks.
Contactless sensors called Beat Boxes will be placed around Leicester on street lampposts, and players can walk, run and cycle between these Beat Boxes, collecting points on their Beat The Street cards for themselves and their team.
Is it Covid-19 safe? Yes. The game is played outdoors individually or in your household. The Beat Boxes are contactless and placed across the whole of Leicester with clear signage and social distancing markers and reminders.
How To Play
Find Beat Boxes around your area, hover your contactless card/fob to earn points for your team, and help win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes.
1: Register your card/fob at beatthestreet.me/leicester to join your chosen team.
2: Find your nearest Beat Box and hover your card/fob until it beeps and ashes.
3: Walk, run, cycle, scoot or roll to a different Beat Box within an hour. Hover your card/fob again and earn 10 points.
4: Carry on your journey. Score 10 points for each extra Beat Box you visit.
