Beat the Street

County Wide

Rhondda Cynon Taff is set to play host to an exciting game called ‘Beat the Street' – a six-week challenge that encourages participants to walk, cycle or run as far as possible.

The challenge will run from Wednesday 13th April to Wednesday, 25th May and is funded by the National Charity Partnership which is a collaboration between Diabetes UK, the BHF and Tesco.

Beat the Street will turn Rhondda into a real-life game where residents are challenged to form or join a team and see how far they can walk, cycle or run. Participants will be able to log their journey by tapping cards against sensors called ‘Beat Boxes', which will be found on lampposts across the area.

There will be fantastic prizes for the teams that travel the furthest and also those that clock up the highest average points per person. There are also weekly ‘lucky tap' prizes just for taking part. Players can monitor their progress via a secure website at

It is free to take part and open to anyone of any age and ability.
