The end is approaching for Beat the Street, the giant game taking place across Chelmsford and South Woodham Ferrers!

Until the game ends on Wednesday, 10th April, there are double points on each Beat Box. The competition will then end at 7pm when the leaderboards will be taken down and the winners announced shortly after the competition.

Nearly 14,000 people have signed up and have together walked, cycled, wheeled, run and scooted an incredible 93,000 miles so far in the competition.

Currently, Woodville Primary School is at the top of the total points leaderboard with Elmwood Primary School and Mildmay Primary School in second and third place. On the average points leaderboard, The Pacemakers are top, with Cliff’s Run Club and Trouble with Triples in second and third place.

Dr Greg Deacon, Head of Health and Wellbeing at Writtle University College (WUC), said: “The last six weeks have flown by and we find ourselves in the final week of the Beat the Street game! Thank you to everyone who has got involved and also to all who have shared their positive feedback on the game experience. It’s been an enjoyable six weeks, so once this exciting week has concluded, we will focus on building on the positive lifestyle habits that have been formed. We will then continue to work with the local community to ensure that these healthy lifestyle habits are put into action and players are signposted to activities and community groups that they might not have known about before.”

Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health in partnership with Writtle University College and Anglia Ruskin University. It is funded by the National Lottery via Sport England, Essex County Council, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford City Council and Active Chelmsford.

The winners will be available shortly after the game ends at and on social media at @BTSChelmsford
