Beat the Street

Beat the Street is back… and it’s bigger and better

A COMMUNITY game turning points into prizes is back in Harwich this spring to help residents get more active – and it’s bigger and better.

Beat the Streat starts on March 13th and will be running for 6 weeks, unlike in 2021 when it ran for 5 weeks.

The free game will allow residents to join teams and be active around their town finding boxes and earning points to win prizes.

Teams with the most points at the end of the 6 weeks will win a prize, as well as prizes being given out on the spot throughout the game for just taking part.

This year also sees more boxes, with 40 scattered around Harwich and Dovercourt for people to tap their Beat the Street cards.

Each week will have a different theme including Go Wild, Go Explore, Go Travel, Go Celebrate and Go Active with special events held throughout the town complete with a mobile beat box offering extra points.

Beat the Street in Harwich and Dovercourt is delivered in partnership with Tendring District Council, Active Essex, Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST), and Intelligent Health.
