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.

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

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.

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.
