Beat the Street is a hit in Annan

Thousands of people have been taking part in a fun community based game in Annan this week.

Beat the Street is a real life walking, cycling and running game for a whole community. The challenge is funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council to promote healthier lifestyles and to reduce congestion and car usage.

The competition will run in Annan from 01 September – 12 October 2015.

People score points and win prizes by walking, cycling or running from point to point and tapping a registered and activated Beat the Street RFID (Radio Frequency ID) card or key fob on sensors (Beat Boxes) which are placed on lamp posts across the dedicated routes where the game is being played.

A player taps their Beat the Street card or key fob at various points on their way to and from work, school and to the shops.
