The event benefits CAT-Coalition for Appropriate Transportation trail programs to popularize the Monocacy Way.  “Thanks to the efforts of our Parks & Public Property Department we have a beautiful trail that is just a 5 minute walk from downtown,” says CAT Director, Steve Schmitt.  This event would not be possible without the very able assistance of super CAR-FREE CAT volunteers, Roy Young, Anne Connors, Lee Poole-Smith, Janneke Bos and Zoe Schmitt.

The MW5K is sponsored by the Bethlehem Police Department which stables their horses at Burnside Plantation which is the start and finish of the Run.

The Bethlehem Parks & Public Property Department maintains the Monocacy Way.

CAT-Coalition for Appropriate Transportation supports urban trails to make recreation more accessible to walkers, cyclists and those relying on public transportation.
