MORE than 93,000 miles have already been covered in the first few weeks of this year's Beat the Street.

So far10,000 people have signed up to play the game and they are aiming to beat last year’s record of 313,000 miles travelled.

Schools, workplaces and teams in Swindon are competing against each other to see who can go the furthest and potentially win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes.

Currently sitting top of the total points leaderboard is Haydonleigh Primary School while WHSmith has the highest average points.

The game currently has four weeks left to run, meaning the race is still wide open.

Brian Ford, Swindon Borough Council’s cabinet member for adults and health, said: “Swindon currently holds the record for the most miles travelled during a Beat the Street game and we’re determined to beat that record again this year.The game is off to a running start in Swindon and we are delighted to see so many people walking, running and cycling for the competition.”

Intended to get people out and about and active, the game involves players tapping special sensors called Beat Boxes, that are located in different parts of the town.

It lasts until November 6. To join in visit
