The Free Radio Walk for Kids Birmingham that took place on Sunday 19th May 2013. A charity walk that went all the way around the Outer Circle (11A / 11C bus routes). At Kings Heath Park it may have been a start or end, so many walkers ended up here, or started here. There used to be a Walkathon every year in the spring, once a year, but I don't think that there has been one for many years! It used to be the BRMB Walkathon in the past.

Welcome to the Free Radio Walk for Kids. Seen from the Vicarage Road at Kings Heath Park. Left to right.

Various banners on the Kings Heath Park railings on Vicarage Road, advertisting the tea room and plant sales etc.

Big Free Radio banner.

Was a lot of canopies and portacabins there at the time (temporary).

Lots of volunteers on site. I think this was at the end of the walkathon.

Spot the photographer! Energy Savers was the sponsor at the time.

Park entrance near the gatehouse on the Vicarage Road.

Birmingham City Council sign being used to advertise the Free Radio walkathon. It used to be the BRMB Walkathon in past years.

Walkers heading down Vicarage Road in Kings Heath. Seen here passing the 11A bus stop close to Kings Heath Village Square.

Volunteers in green and officials in yellow jackets close to Park View Gallery on the Vicarage Road. Near the Avenue Road junction in Kings Heath near Kings Heath Park.

These walkers seen beyond Kings Heath Park. Walking past King Edward VI Camp Hill Schools. Many of them had green t-shirts on for the day.

On the day, the Big Brum Buz (Birmingham's then sightseeing tour bus) was parked on Vicarage Road opposite Kings Heath Park. It used to do sightseeing tours of the city starting from Colmore Row near Victoria Square.

Would assume that people doing the walk could get a ride on the bus, as there was people in green outfits on the day.

Probably also there to support all the walkers at whatever pace that they were able to do the course.

Bonus photos from the Fox Hollies Road in Hall Green. Walkers in green t-shirts, holding water bottles.

Some of them also had green wigs! The buses were still running that day on the 11A and 11C, as the walkers were on the pavements.
