Come down to intu in Milton Keynes on Saturday to find out more about Beat the Street! There will be lots of fun activities, a mini demo of the game and the chance for you to pick up a Beat the Street card and register!
Beat the Street is a real life walking, cycling and running game for a whole community.
What is it? The competition runs in Milton Keynes.
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 on sensors (Beat Boxes) which are placed on lamp posts across the dedicated routes where the game is being played. Beat the Street cards are similar to an Oyster card.
A player taps their Beat the Street card at various points on their way to and from work, school and to the shops.
Registered players can win regular spot prizes for a ‘Lucky Tap’ on a Beat Box.
The more Beat Boxes you tap, the further you travel and the greater your chance of winning a prize.
