Mid-Florida Milers Year Round Events
A Year-Round Event is a self-guided, permanent, walking event available most days of the year. The Mid-Florida Milers and other clubs set up permanent, starting points, select a trail, draw maps, and write detailed walking instructions. You arrive during the business' open hours, register, provide a payment, take instructions with a map, and enjoy the route at your pace. Our events in Florida, like those nationwide may include city routes, residential streets, trails, tourist attractions, and good daily exercise routes in our local Orlando communities, Southeast Florida, and The Villages.
The starting points are businesses or other facilities. At the start point is a file box (Walk Box) marked with the AVA and Mid-Florida Milers logos. You may have to ask the staff to point it out or help you. The proprietors are not club members, so please be patient with these people who are volunteering to help the club. The Southeast Florida walks are registered online and provide a quick method to obtain walk instructions and walk credit, all online.
Registration--Orlando & The Villages
Inside the Walk Box is a registration log. Walks are $3 for all walkers (minors under 13 are free if not credit walkers); every person MUST sign the registration sheet (parents sign for minors). Complete and sign the Registration Sheet, place the fee in an envelope, and mail or leave in the "completed envelope" folder (do not mail cash). Take the walk instructions and walk at your own pace, enjoying the local area for as long as you desire (daytime hours only). The event is open when the business is open regardless of the weather. If you walk for IVV Credit, stamp your record books. IVV Event and Distance Record Books are not available at any YRE Walk Box. Inserts are provided and can be stamped and submitted with Record Books.
IVV event and distance credit (a stamp) are available for each separate day. You must register and pay the $3.00 fee each time you participate. You may walk the route twice for distance credit on one start card for one fee on the same day, (e.g. walk 20 km at a 10km YRE walk).
