Welcome to the Mid-Florida Milers Walking Club
Founded in 1989
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.
As a community member for 27 years we have planned and conducted over 300 walks in every part of the Central Florida Area. As we celebrate 27 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. Our goal is to provide events that can challenge you to keep walking and are fun and interesting 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. We conduct these 3 and 6 mile walks over 25 times a year and have 17 pre-laid out, permanent walks available every day. Remember to walk the 10 fine permanent Year Round Events in the Orlando area, many shaded for a cooler walking experience: Altamonte Springs Mall, Celebration (2), Lake Buena Vista, Maitland, Orlando (3), The Villages, and Winter Park. We also sponsor seven very scenic walks in Southeast Florida in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami South Beach, and Key West that are registered via email/mail. All these are described on our 17 Permanent MFM Year Round Events .
The club is associated with the AVA, the premier national walking association 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.
Join us for a walk and since it is at your pace, the 3 or 6 mile distance is VERY "doable".
