Street Tag
A fun, free, smartphone app that offers rewards for exercise

Street Tag turns physical activity into a game and converts walking, running and cycling into Street Tag points (tags). Turning streets and parks into a giant virtual playground. The family-friendly game rewards primary schools, families, individuals and communities for their physical activities such as walking, running, cycling.

When playing Street Tag, you can record the distance you've walked, run or cycled by scanning virtual tags with your smartphone at various geographic locations. Watch your total distance accumulate and see how you far you climb up the local leader board and compare with other players. The app can run in the background, so it automatically collects tags in a 40-metre radius allowing you to focus on your journey and not your phone.

Each game season lasts 12 weeks. In that time, competitors can vie with each other to hit the top of the leader board and become the winners!

Playing for your primary school

By walking, cycling, or 'park and striding' to school as well as getting out and being active when not at school, children, parents and teachers can earn points for their school to compete for rewards each term.

The top three schools on each of the district leader boards will be rewarded with £50 for Parent Teacher Associations at the end of each 12 week season And the top two schools from each district in seasons one and two will be entered in the Street Tag Oxfordshire School Games Finals to compete to be recognised as the most active schools in the county.
