Welcome to the Mid-Florida Milers Walking Club
Founded in 1989
As a community member for over 20 years we have planned and conducted over 300 walks in every part of the Central Florida Area. We host self-paced walk and sometimes bike events in the greater Orlando area for people of all ages. Walking with the club promotes fitness. Our goal is to provide events that can challenge you to keep walking and are fun to walk. We start walks in different locations -- a great way to see the city's many areas and parks. Please view some of the club's history here.
We have Saturday morning walks on the 1st and third Saturdays and group walks in different locations each month. We conduct these 3 and 6 mile walks over 25 times a year (see Traditional Events page) and have 15 pre-laid out, permanent walks available every day. Here in the Orlando area the permanent walks available daily are in Winter Park, Maitland, Orlando (downtown, south and north), Lake Buena Vista, and Celebration. We also sponsor seven very nice walks in southeast Florida in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Delray Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami Beach, and Key West. These are registered via email/mail. All these are described on our Year Round Events page with pictures of most of them.
The club is associated with AVA, a national walking association that in turn is affiliated with an International group. There are over 2,000 pre-laid out walks available daily in all states. The walks in many cities and parks are designed by local residents who showcase that location's attractions or scenic places. There are also Weekend Walking events where clubs sponsor multiple walks in cities. The National Headquarters sponsors a convention every two years.
Join us for a walk and since it is at your pace, the 3 or 6 mile distance is "doable".
