About Beat The Street Forth and Clyde

People of all ages are invited to ditch the car and get active as a real-life physical activity game gets underway across the towns of Bonnybridge, Camelon and Kilsyth.

The Beat the Street game will take place from Wednesday, 9th September for four weeks. Beat the Street is a free, interactive game that encourages people of all ages to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. More than a million people have taken part in the game across the UK and beyond including games across South Lanarkshire, Glasgow and East Renfrewshire.

The four-week physical activity game will see 30 beeping and flashing sensors called Beat Boxes appear on lampposts around the area for the duration of the game. Primary school pupils will be provided with fobs plus a card for an adult to play alongside them.

The wider community can pick up a contactless card from one of five distribution points. Players then walk, roll, scoot, cycle or run between the Beat Boxes which are spaced half a mile apart, scoring points with their fobs or cards as they go.

The further players travel, the more points they score for their community or school team. Each week is ‘Go’ themed (Go Play, Go Explore, Go Travel and Go Wild) with different activities to help participants get the most out of their Beat the Street experience.

As well as the chance to win prizes for your school or community team, the game has been adapted to reward players for their personal achievements.

With lockdown being eased after the outbreak of Covid-19, communities are understandably cautious about getting out and about for physical activity and exercise. The game has been adjusted to ensure that it is completely safe to play and so it complies with social distancing restrictions.

The changes to the game mean that you do not need to touch a Beat Box, players can simply hover their card or fob near the sensor and it will register the swipe. Further measures such as regular sanitisation of Beat Boxes and temporary pavement markings to help will also be put in place.

Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health on behalf of the Central Canals Development Project and is funded by the Kelvin Valley and Falkirk LEADER Programme and Paths for All's Smarter Choices, Smarter Places Open Fund.


Beat the Street was devised by GP Dr William Bird MBE in 2010 to get communities active and to make physical activity accessible to everyone. This year’s Beat the Street games are more important than ever as it’s vital that communities are fit, active and healthy to face the possibility of a second wave of Covid-19.
