About This Activity

Miles for Meals 8K and 5K benefitting Buses n' Backpacks, is a fun walk, run on Saturday, October 11th. The event starts and finishes at Clermont's Waterfront Park. The course is flat and fast on the South Lake Trail on beautiful Lake Minneola. Join us afterwards at Waterfront Park for activities for children and adults alike. It is a great family affair that will last until about 9:30 am. 

Buses n' Backpacks is a weekly effort to feed children who are afflicted by poverty and homelessness. We currently work with 16 local schools, serving 500 children each week. Last year alone, over 55,000 meals were provided through this program and we are on track to do more this year through serving more schools and more students.

The course is flat and fast on the South Lake Trail on beautiful Lake Minneola. 

Runner/walkers of the 8K and 5K will start at the same time. The course heads east from Waterfront Park, turns around near Minneola Trailhead Park, heads back to the park for the 5K finish. The 8K runners will continue to West Beach and turnaround at head back to Waterfront Park for the finish.
