2018 Membership form now available. Click here to join our club
Gateway Milers is St. Louis region's newest AVA affiliated walking club! We are primarily a walking club although we do venture into other activities such as biking or hiking. We walk 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) or 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) and usually follow with a lunch! Occasionally we venture on regional multi-walk weekend trips. If walking, socializing, eating, traveling, or any combination of the above are of interest to you please consider joining Gateway Milers! It is also a good way to accomplish your 10,000 steps for the day. The club sponsors several Volksmarch walks throughout the St. Louis area each year and participates in other area club walks as well.

Gateway Milers Song: (To the tune of California Girls)
The East's walk clubs are great they really plan their hikes with care.
The southern clubs with the way they walk, they knock me out with all their flare.
The west coast's scenic pathways really make a lovely sight.
And the northern clubs with the way they walk, they make their weekends warm and bright.

I wish they all could be Gateway Milers
I wish they all could be Gateway Milers
I wish they all could be Gateway Milers clubs

The mid-west has the heartland and the clubs are all so grand.
I dig a farm field on a rolling land with the walks all so well planned.
I've been all round this great big land and I've seen all kinds of clubs.
Yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back to the state, back to the greatest club in the world.

I wish they all could be Gateway Milers
