The Beat the Street challenge taking place across Bordesley Green, Small Heath, Sparkbrook and Balsall Heath East, Tyseley and Hay Mills has concluded.

The physical activity game took place over six weeks and rewarded people for walking, cycling and rolling for points and prizes. A total of 3,489 people took part and together clocked up a total of 5,637 active travel miles.


As well as helping people create healthier lifestyle habits, Beat the Street was designed to improve air quality and to reduce congestion and pollution. It also encourages people to connect and engage with their communities and green spaces.

Montgomery Primary Academy took first place on the schools total points and average points leader board. Their 161 players scored a total of 44,850 points.

Jasmine Woodward, Principal at Montgomery Primary Academy, said: “The children have loved taking part in Beat the Street. It is such an engaging way for them to be more active and to get to know their local area." Team BRAWL STARS + FORTNITE came top of the average points leader board.

They said: ''We have loved every moment of it. I think it is a great way to get the kids involved and it's fun to play. Over our past Beat the Street journey, we have visited so many new places - some which were only a few blocks away! It would be amazing if Beat the Street came back next year with even more Beat boxes to scan!''

Beat the Street Birmingham is being delivered by Intelligent Health on behalf of Sport England and Canal & River Trust with support from local organisations. Winning teams and players will receive their prizes shortly and all players will receive a survey to help organisers assess the impact of the game.
