Watch Our Beat the Street Harwich Video


Our new video showcases the successful Beat the Street project held in Harwich.

Thousands of people signed up to take part in Beat the Street in Harwich, which ran for five weeks from September.

They walked, ran, and cycled a staggering 35,166 miles, tapping special fobs and cards on the beat boxes located around Harwich, Dovercourt, and Parkeston to score points.

Players working as individuals or teams also had the chance to unlock lucky boxes to win prizes, and on December 2, 2021 the top scorers were honoured at an awards ceremony.

Beat the Street was funded by an Active Essex pilot project testing ways to encourage residents to be more active and reduce the pressure on the NHS.

With CVST’s Beat the Street co-ordinator Becky at the helm, the scheme, which was a partnership comprising Tendring District Council and CVST with support from Intelligent Health and Sport England, has been hailed a success.
