Nearly 50 teams have so far battled to win a £1,000 prize in Street Tag.

The free game sees players race to collect points by scanning electronic boxes using a mobile app.

Leading team Al Noor have clocked up more than 49,000 points since returning to Dagenham’s Mayesbrook Park last month.

“Street Tag is all about showing people that improving your health doesn’t have to mean getting a gym membership or buying equipment, it can be as easy as pulling on your trainers and strolling the streets,” said Cllr Maureen Worby, cabinet member for social care and health integration.

Teams of up to six players have until 6.59pm on Sunday, March 11 to compete.

The team with the most points will win up to £1,000 worth of bicycles.

Prizes will also be given to crews in second, third and fourth place.

To download the Street Tag app, visit the iOS and Andriod app stores.
