Physical activity

Street Tag

Street Tag will be available in Wiltshire from January 2024 for two years. Street Tag is an interactive app to promote and enhance community-wide participation in physical activities, such as, walking, running, and cycling.

What is Street Tag?

A family app for having fun and being physically active. The app turns the world around you into a virtual playground, points are gained by exploring your local community and collecting virtual tags, individually or as a team with other members of your community for rewards. The app is free and further information including how to download it can be found at Street Tag: FAQ (opens new window).

There will be two seasons with community and school leader boards in 2024, during this time all users will be competing to be top of the leader board and to win the end of season leader board prizes.

Wiltshire Community leader board dates
Season 129 January 2024 to 25 April 2024
Season 227 June 2024 to 15 October 2024
Wiltshire primary schools leader board dates
Season 129 January 2024 to 26 April 2024
Season 227 June 2024 to 16 October 2024

Outside of these leader board dates the app will still be able to be used but any points collected will not result in prizes.

Participants using the app will record their distance walked, ran or cycled by scanning virtual tags with their smartphone at various locations in the community and watch their total distance accumulate to climb up on the leader board.
