We promote a positive and active lifestyle through walking and positive milestone reinforcement - a pin, patch, and certificate for each level of event and distance achieved. Walking 5 kilometers or 10 kilometers frequently achieves milestones you can see. Join us for a walk and since it is at your pace, the 3 or 6 mile distance is VERY "doable".
As we celebrate 28 years this August, join us at any walk venue found under Walk at Mid-Florida Milers (MFM) Events on the left.
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 and 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 history. We have Saturday morning walks on the 1st and third Saturdays in different locations each month. We conduct these 3 and 6 mile walks over 25 times a year (see Traditional Events page) and have 18 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, The Villages(2), and Celebration(2). We also sponsor seven very nice walks in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami South Beach, and Key West which are registered via AVA Online process shown on our Southeast YRE page. All these are described on our Year Round Events page with pictures of most of them.
The club is associated with the AVA- America's Walking Club that in turn is affiliated with an International Association. There are over 1,800 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 at various locations.
