About CFW

A Unique Race Format

Years ago, Track Shack created a Walking Division within most of the races that they sponsor. The members of Central Florida Walkers participate fully in these races and race-sponsor awards are given to the top three male and female walkers. You do not have to be a registered club member to be eligible for an award. All visitors are welcome to join in and have fun.

We do our own timing and scoring at each race and we provide the results Track Shack for the awards ceremony (see Race Walking — Eligibility and Age Groups).

In addition, we designate a number of races throughout the year as club Grand Prix races. Points from these competitive races are tallied throughout the year for awards given at our annual Awards Dinner held in the Spring.

Racewalkers and Fitness Walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate in all the various races, so come join us and walk at your own pace! Most races have a delayed start for Walkers.

Take a look at our Schedule, pick out a convenient time and date, then come to a race to check us out and say Hello. Look for our large club banner at the race.

We look forward to meeting you and talking about our club and it's activities.


We welcome fitness walkers and race walkers of all ages to join us.  We have two types of membership: Individual Member at $15.00 per year and Family Membership at $20.00 per year for a family of any size.

While they last, all new and renewing members will receive a free club fanny-pack with drink bottle holder.  These three compartment packs commemorate our over 20 years of fun and fitness!!
